Saving devfns in the mem ctrl struct is one of the stupid things in v2.

The mem init code could easily know that the 1st ram controller is
0:18.x, the second one 0:19.x etc.

And that was a complex platform.

We dont win any flexibility by letting the board supporter write that in
auto.c. it just looks like something you should know, but in fact you
should not need to.

All it should ever be is:
* number of controller
* channel on controller
* spd position and mux config on i2c bus.

What else?
