I can sort that; it's easy enough.

I can't imagine that it's going to break - the code is sorta simple ;-)

One obscurity I noticed is this bit in the amigaone.dts:

        timer@40 {
                // Also adds pcspkr to platform devices.
                compatible = "pnpPNP,100";
                reg = <1 0x00000040 0x00000020>;
        };

Shouldn't that rather be something like the following?

        pcspeaker@61 {
                device_type = "sound";
                compatible = "pnpPNP,800";
                reg = <1 0x61 1>;
        };

pnpPNP,100 is the i8253 timer as I understand and pnpPNP,800 the PC speaker.
If you interpret pnpPNP,100 to imply the presence of a PC speaker you can't
express a system that has a i8253 but no PCspeaker in a DT so maybe
amigaone.dts and arch/powerpc/kernel/setup-common.c should be changed to
use pnpPNP,800 instead?
