Support for the zaurus platform has been removed from -current.

Philip Guenther (guenther@) committed the change:

Module name:	src
Changes by:	2016/09/03 07:37:46


Log message:
Retire zaurus, as it hasn't made the EABI jump and will be permanently broken
shortly when we use the hardware thread register in userland

(This follows the recent removal of support for the sparc[32] platform.)
