How about this patch.

The main idea is to do all the hardware specific stuff
in a header while the file in the drivers directory
is very simple and common to all the configurations.

The key is the new include file mpc_led.h which
implements the current behaviour for the 8xx/8260/5xx.

If your board has LEDs that don't fall into
the current scheme then in the board include file
you define CONFIG_BOARD_SPECIFIC_LED and provide
the __led_init __led_toggle and __led_set inline functions.

IMHO this cleans up the current scheme, allows boards
that have non standard LED configurations to work, and
I think makes it easier for arches other that ppc to
support LEDs.
