The original intent of platforms as we (Kumar included) laid it out
was that it *only* contain platform subdirs. This makes it easy to
poke around in platforms, and it makes reading the "ls" of that
directory much more meaningful and informative. It also makes it
easy to figure out where a file might be without having to have too
much knowledge about the devices themselves. I really don't like the
idea of polluting this directory.

Yeah, that makes *no* sense to me either. It's an unfortunate
artifact of the naming of boards to include the core name. While the
devices and boards may be similar, once you have bookE vs non-bookE
cores, they become quite different.
I still don't see why this isn't in "sysdev". We intended that to be
the device "kitchen sink". If we really don't want to put it there,
then I would prefer creating a "fsl_common" or "common" directory
I'm also guilty of not noticing the original patch - my apologies.
