Well to be honest, seeing how little contributions the Blackfin people
are doing to upstream projects, I am not really hoping a radical
improvement in the upstream support for Blackfin in the coming months
(years?). So I'd prefer to remove the traces of Blackfin support.

Another option of course, would be to introduce support for the ADI
specific gcc and binutils versions at
http://sourceforge.net/p/adi-toolchain/blackfin/ci/master/tree/. But
it's one Git repository with everything, so not easy to package.
