It would be ideal if we make incremental changes to move xrt xleaf 
drivers to other subsystems. One question comes to mind if xleaf drivers 
move to different subsystems they would need to become independent ko. 
That would require load/unload dependency management complicating the 
design. Also if we go in that direction xdevice.h should move to 
linux/include?

We will wait for the new structure of dfl/ and make necessary for xrt/ 
accordingly.
