    libnm: retire deprecated WiMAX NMObject types · dab1d780
    Thomas Haller authored
    WiMAX is deprecated since NetworkManager 1.2.0. Note that also
    NetworkManager on server side no longer supports this type, hence
    the server's D-Bus API will never expose devices of this type.
    
    Note that NMDeviceWimax and NMWimaxNsp are NMObject types. That means,
    they are instantiated by NMClient to represent information on the D-Bus
    interface. As NetworkManager no longer exposes WiMAX devices, such
    devices are never created. Note that it makes no sense that a user would
    directly instantiate NMObject types, because they only work together with
    NMClient.
    
    Don't drop the related symbols and definitions from libnm, so that there
    is no API/ABI change (as far as building and linking is concerned). But
    make the types defunctional (which of course is a behavioral API change).
    Calling the API now triggers a g_return_*() warning.
    
    Also belatedly mark the WimaxNsp API as deprecated. It should have been
    done in 1.2. Note that here we deprecate the API and retire it at the
    same time. Optimally, we would have deprecated it a few releases ago,
    before retiring it. However, marking something for deprecation is anyway
    no excuse for anything. I mean, removing or retiring API is usually
    painful, regardless whether it was marked for deprecation or not. In this
    case, there is no possibility that a libnm user gets hold on a NMDeviceWimax
    or NMWimaxNsp instance, because NMClient simply no longer instantiates
    them. Hence, this change should not affect any user in practice.
