Is this driver is only used on IBM systems? If so, will IBM provide
support for those systems on RHEL7? If not the driver can probably
safely be dropped.

The trouble with these old drivers is that they don't follow modern
conventions (there are several little bugs at least) and nobody can
test them to safely fix them.

If you do find hardware, we can at least take a solid run at sprucing
up the testable drivers which should give them more life..
