I think what Wolfgang is trying to say is that no one has proven that
there actually IS any unused code.  The ATI driver needs the BIOS
emulator, so you need to enable support for the ATI driver to see what is
and is not actually used.  Just because it's not enabled currently in any
board, that doesn't mean that the code is useless.
