ia64 has no maintainer anymore so the following deprecates it with the goal of eliminating the port for GCC 11 if no maintainer steps up.

Can't say the day wasn't coming... even if the architecture was kind of immune to the speculation security issues.
I suspect its instruction ordering backends is probably one of the most intricate that's not directly applicable to any other architecture. Did icc get deprecated too?

I had been meaning to build an Itanium workstation just as a platform to gain experience with a VLIW instruction set. Looks like my window of opportunity for that is closing (although parts are probably cheap right now).

Probably isn't worth it at this point... I should update my ia64 box's Gentoo install one last time or something before it becomes completely obsolete...
