I don't think this has to be so fixed in stone. The alchemy machdep.c
is pretty universal for any boards based on the Alchemy processor with
YAMON, and I think that as long as it works, it doesn't make sense to go
around populating additional trees.
In particular, it might require reinventing infrastructure that we
already have in place to deal with e.g different PCI routing, PCMCIA
Btw, I added a MTX-1 config in the same location, so shige@ is probably
just following my lead, for better or worse. :-)
