The difference between these two is

#define CPU_FTRS_750    (CPU_FTR_COMMON)

750GX excludes COMMON, which seems like a bug.  With
your change, 750CL uses DUAL_PLL_750FX; does it actually
have that feature?

Either way, it seems a good idea to create a CPU_FTRS_750CL,
the CL is an evolution of the CX, not the FX/GX (in name
at least, dunno about the gory details).

Same thing here.  Are you sure 750CL doesn't need
the NAP workaround?  [Is anyone sure the 750CX
actually needs it -- the comment in cpu_setup_6xx.S
doesn't instill much confidence.]
