[coreboot] Proposal: Removing obsolete & EOL boards and chipsets for 4.2 release

Sounds like a good idea to create a branch of these but shouldn't that be done for other boards as well.

So when you intend to remove boards to create version 4.2 you create a 4.1 branch of the existing state with those boards included. Then remove all boards that need to be dropped.

When it's handled this way it's probably easier to drop boards that aren't used actively and thereby dropping unnecessary maintenance work.

Hm maybe. It's important that the boards which use AGESA are still available somehow, so that they could be ported to coreboot init if someone has interest in doing that. Maybe a branch is good enough.
