Well, it's just an idea, since it would make sense to move
dove/kirkwood/mv78xx0/orion5x closer together anyway, the logical
choice is to use the plat-orion directory for that.

So the stages would be

1. add new platform code into plat-orion
2. move DT-based parts of dove/kirkwood/mv78xx0/orion5x into plat-orion
3. over time phase out the other directories as they fall into disuse
4. rename plat-orion to mach-orion

As you point out, the ugly part of this is that we'd end up having
code in a plat-* directory that doesn't really belong there.

Another way would be to reorganize those directories upfront:

plat-orion -> mach-orion
mach-*/*.c -> mach/orion/*/*.c
mach-*/include/mach/* -> mach-orion/include/mach/*.h

and then go from there. The differences between the headers are fairly
small already, so that should be manageable.
