Experience has shown that drivers for a particular subsystem are best
combined in a single menu, in a single directory.  Otherwise any changes
to subsystem's internal APIs will become a major pain.  Which in the
end means arch/ is usually the place for drivers that don't fit into
any established cathegory.
