SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/4] ARM: msm: Remove 7x00 support
From
Daniel,

I would be very happy to take more code for the older Qualcomm chipset
to enable full functionality for them, but it's been my impression
that far from all that is needed to make it a useful platform is in
the upstream kernel, and there's been no signs of more of it showing
up at least in the last two years.

So we have a bit of a stalemate here -- the current Qualcomm team
wants to avoid having to deal too much with the legacy platforms --
they are technically quite different from the current platforms and
the divergence makes it hard to deal with supporting it all in a
modern way without risking regressions. I tend to agree with them.

Just like omap split between omap1 and omap2plus, I think it's a time
to create a mach-qcom instead, and move the modern (v7, most likely)
platforms there -- enable them with device tree, modern framework
infrastructure, etc. That way you can keep older platforms in mach-msm
without risk of regressions, and they have a clean base to start on
with their later platforms.
