I don't think we have any rules for removal.

When skiboot was being actively developed Stewart and I did try to keep
the skiboot and kernel opal-api.h in sync, but I haven't checked on the
state of that for a few years. ... And I just checked and boy they are
*not* in sync anymore.

But anyway opal.h and opal-call.c are just kernel internal, so I think
we just remove unused code there as normal.
