I don't plan to remove them. I'll leave it up to the platform
maintainers as the new multi_v7 config is not exactly the same selections.

That's strange that you care about the errata setting. I think it should
work either way. We do need to scrub the errata list and enable all the
ones which have no runtime impact and are conditioned on the core
revision. I'm not sure what we'll do with the ones that could have a
negative impact on performance of rev's without an errata.
