You know, if, according to

https://freenode.logbot.info/riscv/20200106

the main reason for doing this is to avoid autobuilder warnings, I'd be
tempted to suggest we leave it in there so people have some incentive to
go fix the real bugs ;-)

(that said, the patch is basically okay by me until at least QEMU is
fixed or hardware appears)
