 As original reporter of the "issue" I am closing it now, since there is no
 clear description or issue that could be fixed in order to ever "succeed"
 in the goal of reducing code duplication. Also, what might seem like
 wasteful code duplication is sometimes two different pieces of hardware
 that happen to behave the same way without any systematic reason. Two
 chips might seem exactly the same, but need very different workarounds,
 and moving the distinction from the device tree model into the code just
 moves complexity, and in addition and much worse, the required testing
 overhead significantly.

 So, if you recognize evil code duplication, it should be fixed. At all
 cost? No. Only if it makes sense.
