That's where we used to put truely hardware dependent stuff, rather than
machine type stuff when the structure was first implemented. At that time
we had a number of different mach-* directories wanting to share things
like the acorn IOC/IOMD stuff, and there's also sharing of definitions
between CLPS711x and EP93xx.

That was long before we invented the plat-* stuff - but even that doesn't
actually cover what asm/hardware does - eg, the SA1111 stuff shared
between SA11x0 and PXA.
