This seems like a step backwards, and your current patch set only does
this for the TI drivers anyway.  Currently we have things split up by IP
holder, with machine drivers that have some platform specifics grouped
together with the matching IP drivers that may also share some platform
specific considerations.  This would group all the IP drivers together
and separate them from the machine drivers they work in concert with for
no obvious benefit.

If you want to make a common directory for TI stuff do that, there's no
need to mess up all the other platforms to do that though.
