It's not just the platform that's dead.

The whole company has been liquidated :(

(The Z-Wave stuff lives on inside Silicon Labs)

The following drivers are tango-specific, and it might make sense
to remove them along with the platform?

drivers/watchdog/tangox_wdt.c
drivers/media/rc/tango-ir.c
drivers/media/rc/keymaps/rc-tango.c
drivers/irqchip/irq-tango.c
drivers/clk/clk-tango4.c
drivers/pci/controller/pcie-tango.c
drivers/thermal/tango_thermal.c
drivers/mtd/nand/raw/tango_nand.c
drivers/cpufreq/tango-cpufreq.c
drivers/clocksource/timer-tango-xtal.c

Mans, do you agree?
