Agreed, there is no use trying to optimize for any of those three cases:

For s390, all new machines come with PCI, so distros will enable it all
the time. Few users run their own kernels even on older machines.

score has been de-facto unmaintained for a few years, and tile has
recently been orphaned with the hardware platform being abandoned by
Mellanox.
