The plan is to remove the call to the `check-avocado` target one
or two months after the release and leave the warning to force
people to move to the new `check-avocado` target.

Later, the `check-acceptance` target can be removed. The intent
is to avoid a direct impact during the current soft freeze.

The ``nanoMIPS`` ISA has never been upstreamed to any compiler toolchain.
  As it is hard to generate binaries for it, declare it deprecated.
+Renaming of the acceptance folder to avocado
+The ``tests/acceptance`` folder was never used to store acceptance tests
+in terms of software engineering. This naming can confuse developers
+adding tests using the Avocado Framework to this folder. The folder
+name change to ``tests/avocado`` also changed the ``make`` target from
+``check-acceptance`` to ``check-avocado``. In this case, the use of the
+``check-acceptance`` target is deprecated.

Not sure whether we need to document this in deprecated.rst, too, since we're normally only listing the things here that affect the users of the qemu binaries, not the people who want to recompile and run the tests... OTOH, I don't mind too much either if we list it here... Anybody else got an opinion on this?
