First, I don't see the redwood5 example you're talking about.
Second, this takes us in the direction of 82xx.  Until the 82xx
abstractions get flushed out a bit more, I remain unconvinced that
they're really the right way to go (perhaps hooking the other direction
would work better, e.g. platform_init() calls board_init(), with a weak
version provided, and some functions forced to be provided by board.c,
such as m8xx_map_io).
