-What:	find_trylock_page
-When:	January 2007
-Why:	The interface no longer has any callers left in the kernel. It
-	is an odd interface (compared with other find_*_page functions), in
-	that it does not take a refcount to the page, only the page lock.
-	It should be replaced with find_get_page or find_lock_page if possible.
-	This feature removal can be reevaluated if users of the interface
-	cannot cleanly use something else.

 What:	Interrupt only SA_* flags
 When:	Januar 2007
 Why:	The interrupt related SA_* flags are replaced by IRQF_* to move them
