Huh? Of course they matter.

Sure, but still the boards should not be broken by any patches, right?

FWIW, I don't think the fixes are very hard. I'll see if I can provide

Don't do it. Thanks. Removing working code is not a good option, and
there may still be people with rev_a/btest boards out there.
Also, the code is very useful as a reference for other boards etc.
Please also don't forget that there will be _millions_ of OLPC machines
out there eventually. Whether or not they are _shipped_ with LinuxBIOS
doesn't matter. The OLPC is designed with hackability in mind (at least
that's what I read and heard in many presentations) and there _will_ be
people who'll want to replace OFW with LinuxBIOS.
The code should definately not be removed.
