Subject[PATCH] acpi: Remove Kconfig symbol ACPI_PROCFS
Nothing cares about ACPI_PROCFS. This has been the case since v2.6.38.
This Kconfig symbol serves no purpose and its help text is now
misleading. It can safely be removed. If this symbol would be needed
again in the future it can be readded in a commit that adds code that
actually uses it.

Signed-off-by: Paul Bolle <>
Tested with "git grep" only.

Michael Opdenacker did a previous attempt in . That patch that needed some
context changes, so I redid it. I also wrote a new commit explanation.
It also addresses the reasons not to accept Michael's patch.
