Grant, could you tell me if there's anything actually work with my patch?
 All I'm doing is adding a couple more commonly used entries to
mpc85xx_common_ids[].  After all, they're common IDs, so don't they belong
into an array called common_ids?

I've been waiting for months for this problem to be fixed, and 3.3 is
broken without it.  We've already established that you cannot actually
call of_platform_bus_probe() twice on the same level, so it's not like my
patch description is wrong or anything.
