Deprecate our TileGX target support: * we have no active maintainer for it * it has had essentially no contributions (other than tree-wide cleanups and similar) since it was first added * the Linux kernel dropped support in 2018, as has glibc Note the deprecation in the manual, but don't try to print a warning when QEMU runs -- printing unsuppressable messages is more obtrusive for linux-user mode than it would be for system-emulation mode, and it doesn't seem worth trying to invent a new suppressible-error system for linux-user just for this.
