We have decided to remove `varlink` (provided by the `libvarlink-utils` package) from Fedora CoreOS. Podman was the primary consumer of this package and the use of it was removed in Podman v3.0 and later [1]. At the moment, we are not aware of any other consumers of libvarlink-utils on FCOS.

The package will initially be removed from the `next` stream. It will be followed by `testing` and `stable` after it has been removed from `next` for at least a month.
