One thing that might be worth considering would be using one or more of
the old Marvell buildds for armhf autopkgtest.
Otherwise it will become pretty hard to keep a non-NEON armhf baseline
for bullseye when these are no longer visible on the buildds.
I am aware of the problems with the old hardware and that this would
not be a long-term solution, but for some time it could help with that.
