I propose that the cdl should be changed from:
Technically it's an mpc555 driver and not an mpc5xx driver, but (as far
as I have noticed) there are no other targets like mpc505 or mpc565 in
the source tree yet.
Also every reference to cme555/ec555 should be changed/refactored to
mpc555 and the files:
Should be renamed to:
The corresponding ec555 files woud need removing and all cdl references
updating in ser_powerpc_cme555.cdl, ser_powerpc_ec555.cdl and ecos.db.
I think just keeping one driver and deleting the other introduces
unnecessary confusion using the cme555 driver for the ec555 board etc.
I hope as there would be no new code or functionality there would not
need to be a copyright assignment just for this?
