I'm currently working on linux support for a few jz4740 hbased devices.
And it's definitely a goal get the code merged upstream once it is in
proper shape, but there is still some stuff that needs to be done.
Mostly documentation and smaller cleanups.

Unfortunately I don't have a jz4730 programmers manual to check so I
can't say for sure, but I guess there is quite some code that could be
shared between between both SoCS(and other jz47xx). I think we don't
want to do what Ingenic did with their codebase and copy 'n paste the
same file with minor modifications for each soc type.

You can find the patches (and files) adding jz4740 support to the
linux kernel at [1] and [2].
I suggest you take a look at it and see if we could use some of the
files(irq, gpio, dma, ...) for a common base between all jz47xx SoCs.
