    Subject[PATCH 4.4 076/118] gma500: remove annoying deprecation warning
    4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Linus Torvalds <>

    commit 166c5a6ef765653848161e6f4af81c05e4b3ecf6 upstream.

    In commit e45708976aea ("drm/dp-helper: Move the legacy helpers to
    gma500") the legacy i2c helpers were moved to the only remaining user of
    them, the gma500 driver. Together with that move, i2c_dp_aux_add_bus()
    was marked deprecated and started warning about its remaining use.

    It's now been a year and a half of annoying warning, and apparently
    nobody cares enough about gma500 to try to move it along to the more
    modern models.

    Get rid of the warning - if even the gma500 people don't care enough,
    then they should certainly not spam other innocent developers with a
    warning that might hide other, much more real issues.
