Deprecate lm32 port
Deprecate our lm32 target support. Michael Walle (former lm32 maintainer) suggested that we do this in 2019: https://www.mail-archive.com/qemu-devel@nongnu.org/msg605024.html because the only public user of the architecture is the many-years-dead milkymist project. (The Linux port to lm32 was never merged upstream.) In commit 4b4d96c776f552e (March 2020) we marked it as 'orphan' in the MAINTAINERS file, but didn't officially deprecate it. Mark it deprecated now, with the intention of removing it from QEMU in mid-2021 before the 6.1 release. Signed-off-by: Peter Maydell <peter.maydell@linaro.org> Reviewed-by: Daniel P.
