I expect v2019.10 :-)

I am preparing pull request and I see that release has issue with
sheevaplug board.

01: Prepare v2019.10
       arm:  +   sheevaplug
+u-boot.kwb exceeds file size limit:
+  limit:  524288 bytes
+  actual: 524632 bytes
+  excess: 344 bytes
+make[1]: *** [u-boot.kwb] Error 1
+make[1]: *** Deleting file 'u-boot.kwb'
+make: *** [sub-make] Error 2

There are also warnings about conversions to DM.

Is it OK to ignore these boards which should be likely removed?
