We can delete this, I don't see any use for it moving forward.
I'll send patches to drop it.

I was contacted by a user of this platform, using it with mainline and
fixing bugs in the GPIO driver for this kernel cycle. So it has users.

This has active support and users through OpenWrt on the
D-Link DNS-313 and DIR-685.

One more developer has contacted me showing strong interest
in the platform.

I use this for various subsystem testing actually (for the hardware that
is on the board, not necessarily Nomadik per se). So it is in pretty
active use.

There were some users from OpenEmbedded some years back
and active patches from Andrea Adami beside RMK and me. Paging
Andrea to see if he still has interest in the platform. (I don't.)
