This patch deprecates the function inside_entry_func.  Per the new comments:

+  /* NOTE: cagney/2003-10-31: A very simple test, such as
+     get_frame_func == entry_point should be sufficient for
+     identifying a pc in the entry function.  Does anyone know why it
+     wasn't sufficient and hence, why the very convoluted
+     "deprecated_inside_entry_func" is needed.  */
+  /* NOTE: cagney/2003-10-31: An ABI and its crt0 code should define
+     and implement a clean frame termination.  Not doing that is
+     really a bug in the ABI/crt0, and, hence, not a reason for
+     enabling the call to deprecated_inside_entry_func.  */

It's "evil twin", inside_entry_file, has already been deprecated.
