This looks OK to me with one caveat.

In several of the patches you're replacing a static initialisation with a
runtime one, and you're doing the runtime initialisation in xxx_setup_arch().
That's reasonably late, so I'd prefer you did it in xxx_probe().

If you resend with that changed I'll put it in next.
