I agree for the firmware-patch. Regarding the MIPS one, 'size' might differ and
'private' will differ per instance. Regarding the RTC driver, 'size' might also
differ. I don't know if somebody really wants two RTCs or the SRAM for MIPS can
be instantiated more than once. Unless somebody with actual hardware jumps in,
I'd say better safe than sorry.

Thanks for the comment!
