Right. The other thing to bear in mind with things like this is that
often if it's the chip vendor they've got mechanisms to generate the
register definitions directly from the chip design so if we take the
complete thing with minimal edits it's a great way of ensuring we've got
information about the chip in the upstream kernel to support future
development.
