I'd say just kill them.

I have applied this to my netdev-2.6 tree, and so it should show up in -mm sometime.

Even though it is quite moldy, I want to give people some time to object before I remove it upstream.

BTW, I plan to remove rcpci driver at the suggestion of Pete Popov, as well. It seems it's another "hasn't really worked since late 2.3.x days" driver, and nobody really has the hardware from this defunct company anymore, apparently.
