      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.
