      drivers/net: delete old x86 variant of the seeq8005 driver · 463d413c

      The last update to the Ethernet HowTo (over 10 years ago) listed this:
      
       ------------------------
         SEEQ 8005
      
         Status: Obsolete, Driver Name: seeq8005
      
         There is little information about the card included in the driver,
         and hence little information to be put here. If you have a question,
         you are probably best trying to e-mail the driver author as listed
         in the source.
      
         It was marked obsolete as of the 2.4 series kernels.
       ------------------------
      
      If it was obsolete over a decade ago, the situation can not have
      improved with the passage of time, so let us act on that.  Even with
      today's improved search engines, I was unable to locate any real
      meaningful information on the ISA implementation of this rare chip.
      
      There are ARM and SGI variants of the driver in tree, but they do
      not depend on the original x86 driver source or header file.  We
      leave those non-x86 drivers to be deleted by the arch maintainers
      when they decide to expire those legacy platforms as a whole.

      drivers/net: delete Digital EtherWorks-3 support. · 0ffd89e4

      This is another one that makes sense to target for obsolescence, since
      it (a)appeared pre-1995, and (b)was rather rare, and (c)did not
      really have any statistically significant active linux user base.
      
      Removing this ISA 10Mbit driver support is unlikely to be even noticed
      by the user base of 3.9+ linux kernels, especially when the documentation
      clearly indicates the vintage with this text:
      
      	 "...designed to  work with all kernels > 1.1.33"
