ieee1394: schedule *_oui sysfs attributes for removal
There is no manpower available to reform oui.db into a library for use in more kernel subsystems. The low ratio of usefulness to size and the occasional need to update oui.db from IEEE's official list suggest to drop oui.db. I plan to make a userspace script available which translates the remaining numeric sysfs attributes to names of organizations. Signed-off-by: Stefan Richter <stefanr@s5r6.in-berlin.de>
