 {sigh}.  the point of my earlier post was not specifically to point
out unused kernel config vars in the MTD code; rather, it was to
suggest that anyone who's interested can run my scanning scripts to
locate such things for themselves in their favourite subsystem(s) -- i
simply used the MTD code as a working example.

  and, BTW, there are still dead config variables in the code that go
back *several* major versions, even though i've documented them just
as many times here:


so if you're curious, the scripts are here:
