Just to add to what Rajendra has stated for OMAP: after OMAP's
conversion is finally made initcall-able then I'll get rid of lots of
the gross macros and before-the-memory-allocator-is-alive stuff.  I'll
make sure that no other platforms are using those bits of course, but
I plan on removing some of this stuff from the core once my platform
is up to speed.
