Yes, that was my point. Compare this to how we have omap and davinci for TI,
orion and pxa for Marvell, or mxs and imx for Freescale. These are all
for the most part independent developments that happened to end up being
owned by the same company.
We try to group code based on technical similarities, not on who makes them.
If you are able to share code between multiple completely independent socs
you work on, the result shouldn't be to put them into a directory you "own",
but to generalize the common parts so they can be shared with everyone else,
