There is a pretty strong argument that the driver 'should' be
checking the status register...

I would leave it the defines here.  When they are acting
as 'documentation' of the register layout of a device, they
do little harm and can be very useful.

Think about what these are for.... They aren't unused
if you are actually using platform data on a given oard.
