I'm thinking of merging the cats and netwinder isa_machdep.c files into one, and placing it under arm/footbridge/isa/

The reason for this being the simple one of both files are near identical, they hook the isa bus to a different interrupt being the only biggest difference, The isa interrupt line can be be put into include/isa_machdep.h for each platform.  And I hate having to maintain 2 copies of the same thing.

The other motive for this is that I've reworked most of the footbridge handling, include the isa side for cats, and of course it'll break on netwinder without me pulling all the changes in.

Actually I'm puzzled that isa_machdep.c is seperate all the other isa files are shared in footbridge/isa...

Is there any major reason for not doing this?
