We have been actually planning to do the same, but it's still on our
todo list. If you can do this it would be awesome.

Also we need to provide some clock configuration from the board file and
I'm sure there will be more in the future. But let's start with the
power control.

Yeah, I really would like to use separate file for ath6kl.
