Hi Eric,

I think I like this approach in general, I already thought about not
passing all parameters as function/macro arguments, too.  But maybe this
becomes too excessive for imx as I would need too many of these device
desc for the different imx variants?!

Anyhow a few things I thought when looking in the files you suggested:

 - Why not use an array for all uart devdescs, maybe the code for
   pxa168_add_uart could become a bit smaller then?:

	extern struct pxa_device_desc pxa168_device_uart[2];
	static inline int pxa168_add_uart(int id)
		struct pxa_device_desc *d = pxa168_device_uart + id;

		if (id < 0 || id > 2)
			return -EINVAL;

		return pxa_register_device(d, NULL, 0);

   (Ditto for the other types obviously.)

 - shouldn't all these pxa_device_descs and pxa168_add_$device functions
   be __initdata and __init?

 - pxa_register_device is better than my add_resndata function in (at
   least) one aspect as it sets coherent_dma_mask, too.  This is
   something I missed when trying to add mxc-mmc (IIRC) devices.
