Taking a step back, the reason for deprecating and deleting
code is to avoid having unmaintained and unused code in QEMU.
If Yongbok is maintaining the mipssim board and devices
and is willing to keep them up to spec with current QOM
and other best practices, and there are test images to
check they still work, I think that's fine.
