Unless db-remove is broken, "pacman -Qm" should list drivers which
aren't useful on this hardware, they certainly aren't compatible with
xorg-server 1.12 (xf86-video-fbdev and xf86-video-siliconmotion are the
only useful video drivers for typical purposes, xf86-video-siliconmotion
needs special configuration as described on the wiki; xf86-input-evdev
is the only working and useful input driver unless having rare hardware
like Wacom USB tablets).

All other drivers are updated (xf86-video-siliconmotion has newer
version in abslibre-mips64el, there is no need to update it now), the
