Well geode is technically i586 even though it has cmov. I use two of
them on a pretty regular basis. There are quite a few of the community
who have XOs as part of the testing program that handed them out in
the F10 devel period and I know a number of RedHat engineers have them
as well so there is a least some hardware around for testing.
Geode (at least the variant in the XO, and later models) isn't intended
to be dropped here. There are earlier Geodes (the original version was
486-ish) that wouldn't be supported.
