The SA1101 is not a CPU. It is a companion chipset for the SA1100. And
so far we have no target using it in the tree, and that isn't likely to
change more than 10 years after the chip availability. Needless to say
that the SA1101 has long been unavailable either.

We also have support for the SA1111 which is a similar companion chipset
for the SA1110. This is not going away as at least the Neponset
expansion board for the Assabet development board is using a SA1111.
