Yes.  For your own use, you can create a new arch/wipro or whatever and
model it on one of the others.  You can also use the arch/evbppc as a
model and put your port under arch/evbppc/wipro or whatever.  In any
case, you can share a lot of code from arch/powerpc (and elsewhere).

If your powerpc design is similar to one that's already supported, then
you should probably just use arch/evbppc/*.
