I'm not Ralf, but I gave your patch a quick once-over anyway for the
hell of it.

I see a lot of duplicated code, esp in arch/mips/idt-boards and the
network drivers.

Is it possible to have a kernel capable of booting on all IDT boards?
Could such a kernel detect what board it's actually running on - or
enough elements of the board configuration to provide more generic
drivers?
