I stand with Jesse Off on self-standing port.  I hate to see that disintegrated
construct of whole evbarm and its companion code in arch/arm.  I don't think
it's terribly helpful to share and reuse.  Having its own arch/foo/ directory
allows to make free sub-directory like dev/ or pci/ or what-so-ever fancy
devices the specific SoC has.  Since Jesse Off made CPLD circuit for TS
product it's entitled a particular product for its own.  Once again I don't like
kitchen sink approach of any evb*.  It's a mistake for SoC processors.
Keep the code minimal and self-standing.  No mesh-like inter-relationship,
