IMHO for just deprecation of an option you don't want to remove it from the
testsuite, just match the warning it will generate in those tests, and
I'm not convinced you want to remove it from the documentation (rather than
just saying in the documentation that the option is deprecated and might be
removed in a later GCC version).
