You wish. Interrupt controllers (and timers) are brought up way before
the device model is available, hence no struct device.

I've started untangling that mess a couple of times, and always ran out
of available time (you start pulling the VFS, then the scheduler, the
creation of the first thread, and then things lock up because you need
to context switch and no timer is ready yet).

I may try to spend some time on it again while travelling to LPC...
