Ask that to the avr32 maintainers. It still builds and is still booted
by some people. And that actually seems to be you as you reported a bug
we introduced in 4.3. I don't think we had any other report after that.

It can be frustrating at times to handle that platform but if it is
working for someone, I don't see why we would remove it.
