Hi Min, Huisong,

deprecation notices are part of the process and it should be prepared one
release before current release, it is good for two things:
- requiring three ack ensures ABI/API breakage is really necessary and approved
by multiple parties
- it notifies the breakage to the users at least one release in advance to give
them time to prepare for it.

It doesn't really have a benefit to add and remove the deprecation notice in the
same release.


For the patches above both are ABI breakages and normally requires deprecation
notice to be announced from previous release to be able to change them in this
release.

BUT, both are fixes and and I guess there is nothing controversial to update
them, also if they are not fixed in this release they will need to wait for at
least a year, so I am for getting them without deprecation notice in place.

Unless there is a strong objection to it, lets continue without deprecation
notices, and you can drop those patches from the set.
