Yes that is the plan - Graeme is working on an initcall setup which
will make this really easy. For now we have #ifdefs. Bear in mind that
most of these were already there in arch/powerpc/lib/board.c.

One other point - one of the reasons that this patch adds so much code
is that PPC supports more features than other architectures. In fact I
hope that we can make most of those features generic, so that we can
remove the PPC #ifdefs and support them for all architectures.
