This feature was implemented first in our 2.4.4 kernel  tree  (module
linux-2.4  on  the  CVS server); it has only lately been added to the
recent kernel tree (module linuxppc_2_4_devel).

You can find both the old stuff and  the  current  code  on  our  CVS
server.  No,  it  has  NOT  been deprecated; it is actively used by a
couple of projects.
