As the author of said patch - calling them obsolete was a bad decision
on my part.
They are effectively orphan with no maintainer and no other driver(s)
that provide the same, or equivalent functionality.

As a DRM newcomer I would recommend sticking to smaller and more
tangible tasks. The TODO list has plenty of varying complexity.
