Hi Jason,

Nice patch series! I've commented on a few details that need improving, but
it seems you're making good progress overall. Note that in other platforms,
we typically focus on converting all the devices outside of the soc first,
because that lets us get away from board files faster, but there is nothing
wrong in principle in converting the devices on the soc as well.
