That should not stop us from supporting them with the same kernel.
We can already build a kernel that will work with IWMMXT on
ArmadaXP (PJ4B) and Calxeda Highbank (Cortex-A9) for instance.

I understand what map_io does. Why do you need a static mapping?

None of the ones above do apparently.

If you have no platform_data, I think you should modify the clkdev
lookup table to refer to the DT based names so you no longer have
to pass auxdata.

The long term solution of course is to describe the clocks in the
device tree as well.

It should be a trivial change, I'm not asking you to put the clocks
in the DT right away, just change the way that this function gets
called.
