I think this is a great idea. Grouping drivers together by function
makes them much easier to find, and it's also easier to find examples
when you're writing a new driver. With the current layout, you have to
grep through the drivers, cpu and board hierarchies to find existing
drivers similar to the one you're trying to write.

git makes it much less of a problem than many other version control systems.
