I wish I get this feedback before, when we were discussing the SROM
patches. :/

Indeed this sounds reasonable. On some boards the omap-gpmc is used for
the same purpose: interfacing to smsc,lan9115 (like on SMDK5410).

Okay, I'll rebase all drivers/soc branches and respin the pull request
so PMU driver and other stuff could go in.

BTW, just in case, although PMU stands for "Power Management Unit" I
don't think it should be placed under drivers/power because it is not a
avs/charger/battery/reset driver. Existing power-related drivers are
under driver/soc (bcm, dove, tegra).

Re-work of SROM drivers could be started on top of it.

Best regards,
