One of the problems you'll encounter is that there's places where we
don't have any timer infrastructure (eg, decompressor) and software
timing loops won't work (they'll be too slow for the lower-end CPUs
and too fast for the upper-end CPUs.)

The best fix is probably to leave that as-is, but introduce a 'default'
output entry instead - so platforms which don't have any listed will
get that instead of the ICEDDC stuff.
