While siop supports all the same chips that esiop supports, esiop
supports capabilities on some chips that the older / lower-end chips
supported by siop do not. Because of the way the chips work, this
requires the actual driver structure to change to support those
features, hence two drivers. So, this is not really the same situation.
As far as de and tlp are concerned, the goal has been to remove de all
along. tlp now should support all of the boards that de supports, so
de should be removed.
