I agree with this point.  The previous remark by Derek shows that
his port is rather suitable to have own arch/<abc> than to co-locate
arch/evbppc/.   Frankly I hate to see any evb* being "kitchen sink."
(and I hate the senseless naming too since it's hard to pronounce and
hard to write down correctly).  It's feared to become constraints than
helpful framework.  It might be unavoidable to keep changing when
used wrong.  So, please make sure to make it right.
