We agreed to have a directory structure like this:

Thinking about this again, there is still unneeded redundancy in the
names, and it would be better to have simple names like that:


So if you have a IMX serial driver that should go to 
and an ethernet driver to
and your I2C driver to

As a minimum, you should start this new directory structure  and  use
it  for  the  IMX  related  code (and leave the cleanup of the other,
already existing code in the  drivers/  directory  to  others).  Even
better,  you  would  include this restructuring of the existing code,

[And ideally, you would clean up all the U-Boot code, merge all  open
patches  and  fix  all  the  remaining  bugs as well. But I guess I'm
asking for too much :-) ]

I really hate this damned machine     It never does quite what I want
I wish that they would sell it.              But only what I tell it.
