(I just got back from my vacation, hence the late reply)
I do not agree that support for this board is going to be removed.
This is one of my reference boards for my USB maintenance work.
I have a series of patches pending in my u-boot-usb tree ready for a
long time that fixes this board. Several times on the mailinglist a
fix for this board has been posted, but they are not picked up by the
Atmel maintainer so far. Even the Atmel tree has been under 'rework'
for more than 6 months without any push to mainline (until recently),
this made fixing these boards a moving target to shoot at.
In short: The lack on a responsive/active custiodian is not a reason
to remove board support. I also offered to take over the custodianship
already for this board. No response so far on this subject as well.

Instead of dropping this board, you can also pull this (and add my
name as maintainer for this board):

As of now, this board is "unbroken" again.
I might also point out, that the Atmel folks are still the responsible
maintainers of their respective boards.
Help and testing, I am sure is welcome. If there are any issues with
Hong Xu's patch I could not detect, please report:)

Wolfgang: I have set the removal patch for this board to "non
applicable"

Best Regards,
Reinhard

PS: currently I base all on top of u-boot/master since u-boot-arm/master
is seriously broken with the OMAP patches.
