I've only used real hardware to test omap1 for at least 10 years, and I
have currently no omap1 devices booting. Still hoping to add n770 and
osk back at some point though for basic boot testing.

I could see qemu being handy for automating boot testing for git bisect,
but as far as I'm concerned no objections to dropping old device support
for qemu.

IMO it's best to concentrate on where there is activity and users, and try
to make thing easier to maintain in the long run. Anything with users and
active development happening we should try to help and encourage :)
