Generally speaking, I think it is a good idea for
mach-{mvebu,kirkwood,dove,mv78xx0,orion5x} to share as much
infrastructure code as possible. A first step is obviously to migrate
everybody to use the drivers/gpio mvebu driver and the drivers/pinctrl
mvebu driver, and get rid of plat-orion/{gpio,mpp}.c once this work is
