+What: devfs
+Date: July 2005 (scheduled), finally removed in kernel v2.6.18
+Contact: Greg Kroah-Hartman <>
+ devfs has been unmaintained for a number of years, has unfixable
+ races, contains a naming policy within the kernel that is
+ against the LSB, and can be replaced by using udev.
+ The files fs/devfs/*, include/linux/devfs_fs*.h were removed,
+ along with the the assorted devfs function calls throughout the
+ kernel tree.
