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.
