As the less active of the two EP93xx maintainers I didn't agree to this.
I don't know if Hartley did, but I can't find anything from him in a
quick search of the list. I have Cc'ed him.

I don't have time to follow this issue in depth, but from my vague
understanding ZBOOT_ROM is unlikely to be used on EP93xx, but still
_possible_ to use. Therefore we should not be removing support for
ZBOOT_ROM on EP93xx in case there are some users out there.
