Very nice cleanup.
Reviewed-by: Linus Walleij <linus.walleij@...aro.org>

At some point we should do a retrospect about how hard it really is for
us to get rid of some really annoying core legacy codepaths and the best
strategy for doing so, even though this took 11+ years as Thomas
says it still looks like a solid path to move over to a generic framework,
only it requires enough gritty people (like you) to hang around and do the
work piece by piece.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
