Deprecation of FlexVolume
FlexVolume is deprecated. Out-of-tree CSI driver is the recommended way to write volume drivers in Kubernetes. See this doc for more information. Maintainers of FlexVolume drivers should implement a CSI driver and move users of FlexVolume to CSI. Users of FlexVolume should move their workloads to CSI driver.
Deprecation of klog specific flags
To simplify the code base, several logging flags got marked as deprecated in Kubernetes 1.23. The code which implements them will be removed in a future release, so users of those need to start replacing the deprecated flags with some alternative solutions.

The severity level at which this type of message is logged has also been changed from error to info for the following triggering events: socket is not connected, quota reached, and soft quota reached.
