I have to admit that I haven't looked at Vivado for quite a while. Is it
possible to select EMIO for those pins? If those are not routed anything
they should be tied to some logic level, I believe.
If they are always forced to be on a physical pin, do you let that pin
just float? Otherwise, the logic level should also be defined, give and
take a logic inversion.
