As much as I like the patches I think a more sane course of
action for these old at91 boards would be to drop most of them.
A simple algorithm would be:
  If not supported in the kernel, drop the board.
The boards that are not in the kernel have not seen any
activity in barebox for a long time, so it is not like
they look maintained.

That would allow us to get rid of some legacy stuff in
mach-at91 and maybe motivate someone like me to actually
work on the remaining boards as it then looks
doable to convert the remaining boards to DT.
