I personally like drivers/macintosh, from my point of view, it makes
things clearer. except for macserial, which should be killed in favor of
a more generic zilog driver, most of those drivers are really mac-centric
stuffs with no "generic" userland interface. Also, drivers/char is
already enough of a mess like this.

I didn't look at the those new patches, but the adb code in
driver/macintosh was abstracted to use a generic "adb controller"
sub-driver interface some time ago and so adb.c should be platform
independant (useable as-is on PPC and 68k). mac_keyb.c too, with all it's
specific mouse support.

David, did you make a generic (m68k/ppc) cuda driver too ?
