It is actually really easy. You just need to move the file into
arch/x86/platform/geode, add a Makefile, and add a line to
arch/x86/platform/Makefile to include it. In this particular case,
since so much code is sliced out, the patch will actually be easier to
review if the file is moved at the same time.
