Deprecate Unicore32 port
Deprecate our Unicore32 target support: * the Linux kernel dropped support for unicore32 in commit 05119217a9bd199c for its 5.9 release (with rationale in the cover letter: https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/8/3/232 ) * there is apparently no upstream toolchain that can create unicore32 binaries * the maintainer doesn't seem to have made any contributions to QEMU since the port first landed in 2012 * nobody else seems to have made changes to the unicore code except for generic cleanups either Signed-off-by: Peter Maydell <peter.maydell@linaro.org> Reviewed-by: Daniel P.
