Russell, I've got your point and I have accepted it after first message. Go
back to my initial reply and re-read it. It starts with "Understood. ...."
I'm not looking for a flame war. I am more interested in knowing if you think
that the armada code re-org makes sense or the use of -EINVAL to mean that dev->of_node
Coming to armada changes, I would also like to know if pdev->dev.platform_data is
in use at all. If so, are there any examples where that is being setup? Because I
think the "missing 'ports' property" message is missleading.
