Description (last modified by Joel Sherrill)

POSIX.1-2001 marks ualarm() as obsolete and POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of ualarm().

In short: RTEMS should stop supporting ualarm and it be removed from the source tree, if feasible (I haven't checked).

10 years of legacy support should be enough.

Nah.. if Fedora 20 still supports it, I don't see why we should drop it.
