it is not trivial to convert Malta and Paul is not involved with any
MIPS anymore since 2019. I have this on my todo list for over one year
but didn't find time ;)

But Malta is rather important because it is the reference board for
MIPS Qemu. It's also important for U-Boot CI due to build coverage for
LE/BE and 32/64 bit and Qemu tests. The qemu_mips board also used for
CI is deprecated and I definitely won't convert that. In fact I already
sent patches to remove it with this release.

Anyway I started to convert things and made good progress. But I need
some more days to finish and test. When do you plan to apply the
removal patch series?
