Its already in there now that I have replies from Nguyen Dinh.  It
looks like this presently:

 arch/arm/plat-mxc/Kconfig                   |    2 +-
 arch/arm/plat-mxc/include/mach/iram.h       |   24 +++++++--
 arch/arm/plat-mxc/iram_alloc.c              |   50 +++++---------------

and if we get rid of the iram_alloc/iram_free wrappers around the
sram_pool (now pv_pool) alloc/free in iram.h, in the same way I've
done for Davinci, then we get less new additions too.
