I would think so - aren't they ARM9 variants?  Whatever that is
special about being "omap" could be separated out if there is 
much to it (as opposed to what is special about being "arm9")

You might end up with something like this:
  hal/
      arm/
          arch
          arm9/
               var
               omap_platform1
               omap_platform2
                 ...

If there is sufficient overlap, then you might add
               omap
to handle the common parts.
