I am not sure of this. The only samsung specific code in
dw_mmc-pltfm.c file is the data for of_device_id instances. The clock
lookup added into this file in the 3rd patch does not cause any harm
on non-samsung SoC's which might not define those clocks (on clock
lookup failure, there are only warning printed, the driver's probe
does not fail.

I would prefer not to add separate file for Exynos SoC's for now.
Splitting into different files will need to defined new callbacks
which I fell is not really required.
