  All codes that are related to S3C2400 and independent with platforms
(GP32 in this case) should go into arch/arm/s3c2xx0.  GP32 specific
part should go to arch/gp32, IMHO.  But it may be easier to put them
under arch/evbarm for the beginning.

  I have SMDK2400 eval board at my office, but I haven't thought it's
worth to port.  Knowing that there's such a cool beast, I think I
should get it back from the shelf...

Happy hacking, Karl.
