Well a board is more than the sa11x0 pheripherals ... so there still is a
bunch of stuff in sys/arch/arm32 but still.... hmmm....

moving the stuff in sys/arch/arm sounds logical to me but only if all the
rest of the board specific stuff or hpcarm stuff is in the arm32 branch...
the SA11x0 can then be the processor only and MD stuff can then be called
using functions.
