Get rid of Documentation/feature-removal.txt
This file has turned out to be a pure write-only file that causes merge conflicts and has no actual redeeming features. There is never any reason to add stuff to this idiotic file. Either something isn't getting used, and you should just remove it, or there is no excuse for removing it in the first place. Just stop the idiocy. It has also been the excuse for just plain bad behavior ("Hey, I don't like xyz, so let's mark it for removal" followed by "Hey, look, it been in feature-removal.txt for six months now, so we should remove it"). The recent bogus setitimer() ABI change request was just the most recent example of pointless and incorrect mental masturbation involving this file, and I'm tired of the silly and pointless conflicts in the file. This removal was discussed during the recent kernel summit, and while Steven Rostedt suggested we should just enter the file itself in the feature-removal schedule (to see if anybody who edits the file actually looks at it), that's cute but non-productive.
