The code in question is all from somewhere else and the parts that
don't/won't work from RTEMS are intentionally disabled.

They are marked with RTEMS_REMOVED rather than deleted because it
makes getting updates from the original location easier. The changes
when you diff are more contained and well defined this way.

Don't remove it and don't enable it.
