Yes, that's probably worth doing at some point, particularly for the chips 
that don't have auto-generated SoC data (OMAP2420/2430/3xxx).  It's 
probably possible also for the auto-generated SoC data but will require 
some major changes to the auto-generation scripts.

In the medium term, Thomas's upcoming conditional section patches should 
reduce the runtime memory usage for hwmod data unrelated to the 
currently-booted SoC down to zero.
