It is really hard to split the platform specific subdrivers into
different subsystems, which will generate lots of duplicated source
code, break the whole support into several pieces and also will make the
users be difficult to choose the suitable subdrivers in different
places.

So, I did like the forks have done under drivers/platform/x86, created
the drivers/platform/mips/ for putting the future MIPS netbook/laptop/pc
extension drivers in.
