Pushed the three you reviewed since either no code depended on them, or in the 
OpenCL case it's an API that nobody has ever been able to use anyway.

I'm not exactly interested in looking around to see if any of this deprecated 
stuff is still used. And IMO reintroducing them in a point release is quite ugly.
An exception could be FF_API_DRAWTEXT_OLD_TIMELINE since as Clément pointed in 
another email might be needed to remain compatible with libav.
