Definitely, I think that's the ideal case. I would very much like to
see independent subsystem maintainers for the device drivers that are
currently buried in per-architecture or per-platform directories.
Among the ones that we should be moving out of there (or have already)
are cpufreq, gpio, irqchip, pinmux, clock, dmaengine, timer, and there
are probably some more. Since none of these are strictly ARM specific,
my feeling is that they should not be part of the arm or arm-soc tree
in the future but have their own trees.
