Right now there are alot of artificial differences between the sun and IP22
8530 drivers by just different prefixes.  A good start would already be
to unify all these needless differences which is largely a mechanical job.
Once that is that is it will become easier to spot all the relevant
functional differences - there aren't that many but by now they're well
hidden.
