    Feature Removal: disable "mtest" command by default · a2681707
    Wolfgang Denk authored
    The "mtest" command is of little practical use (if any), and
    experience has shown that a large number of board configurations
    define useless or even dangerous start and end addresses.  If not even
    the board maintainers are able to figure out which memory range can be
    reliably tested, how can we expect such from the end users?  As this
    problem comes up repeatedly, we rather do not enable this command by
    default, so only people who know what they are doing will be
    confronted with it.
    
    As this changes the user interface, we allow for a grace period
    before this change takes effect. For now, we make "mtest"
    configurable through the CONFIG_CMD_MEMTEST variable, which is defined
    in include/config_cmd_default.h;  we also add an entry to
    doc/feature-removal-schedule.txt which announces the removal of this
    default setting in two releases from now, i. e. with v2013.07.
