Thanks a lot for this. I highly appreciate your effort.

Please try to keep MALTA specific stuff inthe MALTA board directory.

Actually yor patch would cripple all files it touches by throwing out
code that is needed for other boards. I cannot retrace why  you  made
most  changes  (like removing Copyright entries from rtc.c ?), but in
the current state this patch is useless - I cannot apply  it  to  the
source tree without corrupting it.

Please clean it up such that it has minimal impact  on  other  boards
and resubmit.

What's "sde" ?

Yes,  the  patch  needs  some  modifications:  a  major  cleanup  and
overhaul. Sorry.
