v4.10-rc3 was building successfully but had some issues in the network

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.
