IOMD may be RPC-specific, but Footbridge support, in a correct world,
shouldn't be CATS specific.

There are many more ARM boards in existance than the CATS that use
Footbridge, eh?

SA11x0 on-chip periph support is, in effect, a standard set of
hardware wrapped around a core.  Footbridge is a standard chip sitting
right next to a core.

Both should be supported via common arch-dependent code, _not_ in
machine-type-specific code.
