Subject: [PATCH] Remove "obsolete" label from ISDN4Linux (v3)
Date: Sat, 21 Apr 2007 15:07:51 +0200	[thread overview]

From: Tilman Schmidt <tilman@imap.cc>

The "obsolete" label on the ISDN_I4L Kconfig option is not, and
has never been, accurate. It has already prompted repeated attempts
to remove actively used functionality from the kernel without a
working replacement. This patch removes the incorrect label and
corrects the accompanying help text.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.
