I am addressing almost all uses of deprecated methods. They are mostly calls to rtems_clock_get() which can be easily corrected or test code which will be removed when the deprecated feature is removed.

This BSP however has what appears to be a unique feature -- the ability for a thread to add a unique exception fault handler. My inclination is to rip this out but I am not doing it now. I am just turning off deprecated warnings for the file.

I suggest to remove the functionality of task specific exception handlers. In a multi-threaded environment exceptions affect the overall program, e.g. memory corruption.

This code is disabled. It can't use notepads because they are obsoleted in 4.11 and removed after.
