Should we turn the depends on ARCH_MVEBU into a depends on PLAT_ORION,
like I did for the pinctrl driver (patch accepted by Linus Walleij
yesterday) ? I think the dependency on ARCH_MVEBU was making too much
of a shortcut, by assuming that we would very quickly move everybody
into mach-mvebu. As we rather decided to move gradually
mach-{kirkwood,dove,orion5x,mv78xx0} to those infrastructure while
keeping them in their respective directories, I think a dependency on
PLAT_ORION is more appropriate here.
