For the audio part it is a bit complicated than that:
different base frequencies, for twl6040 we have parameters for Vibra (twl4030 
class only have the coexistence). The soc codec has a list of misc parameters 
for board specific configurations as well (not all board using them).
I was thinking to switch the MFD driver(s) to use flags to specify the needed 
child, and change the child drivers to deal with the missing platform data 
In that way, board files can pass the vibra/codec platform data to the new 
i2c_twl file for example, and provide flags to enable functionality.

The changes in board files are minimal. The biggest part is the code move, and 
that will remain the same now or later...
