Yeah, I'm not sure I entirely understand the plan with it though even
without any structure it doesn't make much difference (in that
everything is being reviewed by the subsystem maintainers just as it was
before we dumped the files in a single directory). I'm tempted to say
the device tree folks should be looking at it as an awful lot of what
they're doing is exactly the same thing.
