I'd like to point to the xilinx_ocp directory in linuxppc_2_4_devel.
While Xilinx is probably more concerned with the code being in the
Linux kernel than Motorola (but I could be wrong), the OS-independant
code is still always the same.
Since I wasn't explicit enough, I'm hoping we can rewrite the Makefiles
(which shouldn't be too hard to keep in sync as it should end up being
just changing the file lists) and that the dummy files can just be
removed and ignored.
