most of omap3630 is based off omap3430. I know from an readability point
of view, it might have been good to split that to omap3-common.dtsi,
omap34xx.dtsi, omap36xx.dtsi etc.. But there is no real need at this
point in time to do that. Unless, ofcourse, we'd like to set that up as
an standard for all OMAP SoCs...
