Congradualtions! You will have roughly about 950 files under that
Even with good effort to combine files and promote sharing, I think
you will still have quite some.
I think having another directory layer under arch/mips/platforms
shouldn't be too bad, (although I like arch/mips/machines better).
We can use some scheme like Geert was proposing, i.e., named after
boards and chipsets. Hack, I think even naming after board vendor

I second on this.
