Subject[PATCH v2 4/6] lib/vsprintf: Remove support for %pF and %pf in favour of %pS and %ps
Date
%pS and %ps are now the preferred conversion specifiers to print function
%names. The functionality is equivalent; remove the old, deprecated %pF
%and %pf support.

Depends-on: ("treewide: Switch printk users from %pf and %pF to %ps and
%pS, respectively")

@@ -89,14 +87,6 @@ The ``S`` and ``s`` specifiers are used for printing a pointer in symbolic
format. They result in the symbol name with (S) or without (s)
offsets. If KALLSYMS are disabled then the symbol address is printed instead.

-Note, that the ``F`` and ``f`` specifiers are identical to ``S`` (``s``)
-and thus deprecated. We have ``F`` and ``f`` because on ia64, ppc64 and
-parisc64 function pointers are indirect and, in fact, are function
-descriptors, which require additional dereferencing before we can lookup
-the symbol. As of now, ``S`` and ``s`` perform dereferencing on those
-platforms (when needed), so ``F`` and ``f`` exist for compatibility
-reasons only.
-
The ``B`` specifier results in the symbol name with offsets and should be
used when printing stack backtraces. The specifier takes into
consideration the effect of compiler optimisations which may occur
