Are there any in-kernel users?

Subject: [devel] deprecation policy

Do we have a concrete policy on deprecated APIs?

A while back we agreed to deprecate the dynamic IRQ / exception APIs, and task irq APIs, and they all have been marked with __deprecated. The change that did this landed mid-April and was in the 1.4.0 release.
Once the merge window reopens after 1.5.0 gets tagged and released, I would like to remove this code from the kernel.
Any objections to this? Is 6 months enough time (period between 1.4.0 -> 1.6.0) for end users to adapt?
