This really should be split into two patches. One for the perl script
and one for the actual kernel code.

Scanning the actual kernel code you have a lot of #ifdef's that should
be cleaned up:

Can't #ifdef CONFIG_PPC_750GX_DUAL_PLL_IF_SYSFS just be #ifdef

#ifdef CONFIG_PPC_OF seems unnecessary as all PPC always has this set.

What's up with #define MULFIRST and the #if 0?
