Register, kernel and platform data definitions are held in the

+ Files in here are either common to all the s3c24xx family,
+ or are common to only some of them with names to indicate this
+ status. The files that are not common to all are generally named
+ with the initial cpu they support in the series to ensure a short
+ name without any possibility of confusion with newer devices.
+ As an example, initially s3c244x would cover s3c2440 and s3c2442, but
+ with the s3c2443 which does not share many of the same drivers in
+ this directory, the name becomes invalid. We stick to s3c2440-<x>
+ to indicate a driver that is s3c2440 and s3c2442 compatible.
+ This does mean that to find the status of any given SoC, a number
+ of directories may need to be searched.
