Ok, thanks a lot for the update.

For imx21, we only support the original development board and no real
products, which means the platform code is not very valuable and we could
drop that if everything else is done.

For imx1, Alexander Shiyan has already submitted a series to remove
the board files. I don't know remember if there were remaining objections
to that, but it does seem reasonable.
