How about we add a feature to the build system to warn about modules that are in desperate need of love? Maybe even with a warning, something like: "If no one stands up to help or at least speaks up to keep this module for three releases, this module is going to be deleted."

To me, this driver as well as a bunch of seemingly no longer used boards should be marked as such. If there is indeed no longer a user of that stuff, maintaining the code would be wasted effort.

(To me it is important that hose warnings would make it in the release. Maybe an end user never cares to test with the current master, but only with the release. If we would add such a message, we should make sure that any potential user gets the hint and ideally contributes the testing result, or donates a piece of hardware to a willing core developer, or something.)
