+ Support for simicsfs kernel driver that provides access to a
+ host computer's local filesystem when the target is
+ executing within a SIMICS simulation has been removed.
+
+ Simics is now moving away from the simicsfs kernel module,
+ as the kernel module has required too much maintenance
+ work. Users should move to the user mode Simics agent
+ instead.
