We've done some experiments in the past to unify this and unfortunately
we can't. The reason is that some of the old 32-bit ARM code needs some
information from the APBMISC registers very early during boot (among
other things for SMP support), so delaying this doesn't work.

I agree that it would be good to put this into some comment for later
