i'd like to get away from "bf5xx" actually and start using "bfin".
ive started doing this in some of the files, so let's not add more.

also, if we do decide to add more to the name, it should be closer to
what ADI calls the actual product, so probably "bfin-eval-adau1701".
although, once we push the SPORT # and I2C address to platform
resources, this should work for more than just the eval.  it'd fall
into our "basic blackfin" category, so we'd only tweak the Kconfig
desc/help text.
