I executed a clone detection tool* on drivers source code and I found
that there are similar files between drivers/gpu/drm/amd/ and
drivers/gpu/drm/radeon, but also inside each of theses folders.

Some examples:

I use meld for seeing the differences and similarities. More results
from the tool at: (The number on the
first field is the number of probable cloned lines of code).

Should these files be consolidated? And if so how?

Thank you,
