Up to you to figure out the ordering.

Maybe send pull requests for the ones that are ready to go?

They should be done against what we have in clean-up probably, so
omap-for-v3.8/cleanup-headers-prepare-multiplatform-v3 or against
omap-for-v3.8/cleanup-headers-gpmc it that merges easily with
the cleanup branch.

Right, once we enable CONFIG_ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM, drivers trying
to include <mach/*.h> or <plat/*.h> files will fail to build.
