Description Jesper Skov 2001-01-04 14:33:54 UTC
There was some discussion of getting rid of the old diag output method
altogether, relying solely on the vector/comm tables for consistency.

However, implementations weren't cleaned up and still have the hardwired
magic to do hal_diag output without the tables - some of the
implementations even being broken in this regard as it was never tested.

Should confirm on the mailing list that this is what we want, and then
clean out the cruft and update the porting guide as well (if necessary).

Comment 1 Jesper Skov 2001-01-04 14:35:33 UTC
Incidently, this would also fix a doc shortcoming - switching channels only
work with VECTOR_DIAG (i.e., vector/comm tables) and not if the diag output has
been hardwired as it happens in the compatibility code.
