Dropped Platforms

Support for Power7 based systems was removed in v6.3-191-g16b7ae641037. Power7 hardware was supported largely because it was the initial bringup platform for Skiboot. Once P8 hardware became available almost all development (and testing) on P7 ceased. Anyone interested in using OPAL on a P7 should look at one of the early v5.x releases.
