The question is whether we need Config.in.legacy handling for the
removal of this package/option. Since it seems like the only user of
eventlog was syslog-ng, then supposedly anyone having eventlog enabled
also has syslog-ng enabled. If that's the case, then we probably can do
without any Config.in.legacy handling, because silently dropping the
BR2_PACKAGE_EVENTLOG=y when Buildroot gets updated is the right thing.
Chris, Arnout, any opinion on this ?
