Actually I prefer not to remove the existing driver at the moment. See
the cover letter for reasons why not to do so right now...

Also, there's not that much code from the old driver in here, surely
less than the default 50% -C and -M options of 'git format-patch' use
as a threshold for detecting copies iirc..

I would prefer this to be reviewed as new driver, I know it's a bit
more painful, but irq handler and a couple of other routines apart,
there's not that much code shared between the two...

Also in this case I prefer not to remove existing code, as long as
there are platforms using it..

It's probably a leftover, I'll remove it...

As you noticed already, the old driver did not support OF, so there
are no compatibility issues here
