Subject: [PATCH 12/17] initrd: mark initrd support as deprecated
Date: Thu,  9 Jul 2020 17:18:09 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200709151814.110422-13-hch@lst.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200709151814.110422-1-hch@lst.de>

The classic initial ramdisk has been replaced by the much more
flexible and efficient initramfs a long time.  Warn about it being
removed soon.
