What Kevin and I have both repeatedly suggested, I think, is:
  - Do not deprecate inside_entry_func; fix it if you don't like the
    way it is implemented.  Change the implementation.
  - Deprecate entry_func_lowpc and entry_func_highpc (there's a typo in
    your changelog, two lowpc's) if you really want to deprecate

The concept of inside_entry_func does not seem to be deprecated, so why
rename it?
