Hmm I don't think mach-integrator is using ARM710T?

The ARM710T was done by NEC and was used by the Psion MX hardware.
It's very close to ARM720T as far as I remember so might as well keep
the CPU support for it as that's just a few lines of code in the
mainline kernel.

I don't think we have any mach directories using ARM710T, but I
would not be surprised if somebody comes along with device tree
based booting patches for Psion MX at some point.
