I think so. New directory, "exynos" is necessary.
The "exynos" directory can include IPs such as MIPI, which are related to FB stack
and are used for exynos SoC series.
However, s3c-fb.c will remain in "drivers/video" directory, because s3c-fb.c can be
used for s3c24xx, s5p64xx SoC series as well as exynos series.
