gvinum: add deprecation notice
Vinum is a Logical Volume Manager that was introduced in FreeBSD 3.0, and for FreeBSD 5 was ported to geom(4) as gvinum. gvinum has had no specific development at least as far back as 2010, and has a number of known bugs which are unlikely to be resolved. Add a deprecation notice to raise awareness but state that vinum "may not be" available in FreeBSD 14. Either it will be removed and the notice will be updated to "is not" available, or someone will step up to fix issues and maintain it and we will remove the notice.
