#4160: Obsolete mvme5500 in favor of Beatnik

 This is a rare case where we have two BSPs which support the same
 hardware. The beatnik primarily targets the mvme6100 but per the README
 also supports the mvme5500. The mvme5500 only supports the mvme5500. These
 are supposed to be BSPs in use by the EPICS community and consolidation
 will ease the transition to libbsd a bit.

 We need to determine if there are any technical features in the mvme5500
 BSP not in the beatnik. Or any other barriers.

 It should be simple enough to add mvme5500 as a variant of beatnik so no
 user would need to know we removed it.

 Ultimately though, we need a user who can test on the hardware and attest
 we can do this.
