I assume that people will still have legacy kernel images
which include the LSI drivers but not the virtio-pci drivers.
versatilepb in particular is pretty widely used as an example
ARM QEMU system (it was the sanest one before virt came along),
so there's a good chance of breaking a bunch of tutorials
and old images if you stop creating LSI devices.

More generally, I'd rather not spend any time at all messing
about with these old board models if they're not actually broken.
