I guess that adding a drivers/platform/aarch64 map for this makes
sense, with some comments in the Makefile and in the Kconfig
help explaining that this is for PC/laptop style EC drivers,
which combine multiple logical functions in one, only!

Assuming that we are only going to use this for such EC drivers,
using the platform-driver-x86 mailinglist for this makes sense
since that is where are the people are with knowledge of e.g.
userspace APIs for various typical EC functionalities.

It might even make sense to also use:


As git tree for this and send pull-reqs to Linus for this
together with the other pdx86 for the same reasons.

I would be open to that as long as this is strictly limited to
EC (like) drivers.

Ilpo, what do you think about this ?
