I chose this way because it seemed to be a simple way to port the dbox2
board to 2.6 using the new device API. Is there another 8xx board which
uses the device API for its onboard peripherials and can be used as a
reference? Can I get my devices registered without modifying
platform_init, or shall I send a patch with the board_init() you
mentioned? See my board.c attached.
