I think Kumar's point is that the code that's correctly marked with 
CONFIG_MPC8349 is not 8349-specific.  It's 834x-specific, and there already is a 
macro for 834x.  If someone were to add support for an 8343 or 8347, they would 
need to apply Kumar's patch anyway.

*IF* some of this code is really 8349-specific, then the person adding support 
for the 8343 or 8347 would need to modify this code again.  However, I don't 
think that's going to happen.
