As we're multiplatform on ARM, and this is using the PL11x AMBA IDs,
we must ensure that it's compatible with everything that the fbdev
driver is compatible with... however, I suspect that's not worth the
effort (unless Linus W wants it?)
If we make it PL111 specific, then we don't need to handle Integrator
CP, or the Versatile PB/AB weirdness. The only thing left is the
power etc enable bits on Realview which uses the PL111. See the
code for Realview in drivers/video/fbdev/amba-clcd-versatile.c.
