The ARM machines really shouldn't be using the bindings that PowerPC is
using for the machine as they conflate the machine driver with the SSI
binding.  The idiom for new systems is that machine drivers should be
first class devices in the device tree referencing the SSI and CODEC.

The current bindings should be preserved for existing systems of course.
