I think it would be useful. Adding DT and clk framework support i
always wounder which platforms i've just broken. It would also be good
to not limit it just to drivers shared within ARM. It seems like the
I2C driver is also shared with a few PPC devices. The Ethernet driver
is also used by PPC. Similar for the SATA i think, plus i think it can
also be used on PCI cards!
