My hope was to avoid introducing a new field in the already bloated
coresight_device structure, and on top of things a component specific
field. I think it would be worth it if we'd envision making the
coresight drivers removable in a not so distant future. But doing
something like that is quite tricky (as Kim quickly found out) and
skirts the bottom of the list of priorities, if on it at all.

I'll change it if you're really keen on it but it would be code that
is never used.
