Sorry, maybe Ben and I aren't being clear.  405GP (Walnut) support is
in arch/powerpc.  There is also support for 405EX and 405EXr.  The
arch/ppc tree is going to die in June, whether the rest of the 405
boards are ported or not.

So are you trying to add defines for a new board, or?  I don't see much
of a reason not to go ahead and do what you're doing now rather than
later but I'll leave that up to you :)
