Yes, this looks really nice (with the cleanup bits that are obviously
missing applied), thanks a lot!

We should probably try to keep existing defconfig files working,
which could be done e.g. like

	tristate "Rockchip dwmac support"
	depends on OF
	select MFD_SYSCON

so that any configuration that currently has ARCH_ROCKCHIP and DW_MAC
enabled ends up with DWMAC_ROCKCHIP enabled as well.
