Did we un-deprecate nss_compat? Should we?
Since this commit:

Move nss_compat from nis to nss subdir and install it unconditionally
This has been tested that local lookup still works with and
without an installed libnss_nis, and that NIS lookup works when
libnss_nis is available.
it is no longer necessary to deprecate nss_compat because there is no
strong (non-configurable) NIS dependency anymore.
If we un-deprecate nss_compat, we should add a note to NEWS (both for
2.28 and 2.27.1).
