So you have been waiting for year WITHOUT ANY COMMENT, to ensure that
this patch does not apply anymore and to ensure that it would hard or
even impossible to rebase this change on top of the moving development.
And then you said that I should do this job. This is exactly same as
writing to me "fuck you, we do not need you anymore". So I would answer
for this to you that You are idiot. I have no other words for this. You
were complaining that you are missing developers for doing cleanup or
maintenance of powerpc. And this is the way how to ensure that no other
would come. Congratulation. It is this what you wanted? Seems so.
