It's not up to me to decide this, the community only can decide to
remove the support from the kernel.
What I can tell, and it's been the case for a handful of years now, is
that Atmel/Microchip will not work on this platform anymore and won't
stop a removal of this platform from the Linux kernel.

I know that the dual approach DT/non-DT for some drivers is somehow
painful but I don't see AVR32 moving to DT in the near future...
