Shouldn't it be enough to have a common compatible value in each
of these boards, e.g. "amcc,generic-ppc44x" and then just ignore the
specific type unless you need to do something special?

For all I can tell, bamboo, canyonlands, katmai, rainier, sequoia
and taishan setup is already identical except for their names, while
ebony and Sam440ep are almost the same, except for their RTC device
probing (which should be done in a generic way as well ;-)).
