My patchset converts the CPM enet and serial drivers to of platform 
devices when CONFIG_PPC_MERGE is defined, and signficantly overhauls the 
device tree binding.  A 885 CPM UART would have a compatible like this:

compatible = "fsl,mpc885-smc-uart", "fsl,cpm1-smc-uart",
              "fsl,cpm1-uart", "fsl,cpm-smc-uart", "fsl,cpm-uart";
