There will be no more new variants.

Why is this better? It creates a module out of the shared code that only
has one single user, the ThunderX or the Octeon driver and they will
never run both at the same time.

Why not just link the shared code to the driver that uses it? Calling
accross modules is also slower, although that doesn't matter here.
