No, I'm sure you know who the users of the board files in upstream kernels
are. If someone comes up with a good reason why one of the files is
needed after all, we can always revert the removal at a later point.

I'm definitely in favor of removing known unused code that gets in the way
of progress and adding clean code as quickly as we can review it.
