    Nice idea, thank you!

    A few notes on categorization below.

    Or maybe bcm instead of broadcom. Not sure which is preferred by
    Broadcom people.

    Arguably part of Marvell.

    Why edac?
    The most obvious name I can see here is calxeda.

    > create mode 100644 arch/arm/boot/dts/freescale/Makefile

    Freescale has been part of NXP for a while, so it might make sense to
    merge the freescale and nxp directories. I can't speak for
    NXP-the-company, so that's just my view as a bystander.

    > create mode 100644 arch/arm/boot/dts/kirkwood/Makefile

    The Kirkwood family should probably be sorted into Marvell.

    > rename arch/arm/boot/dts/{ => layerscape}/ls1021a.dtsi (100%)

    The Layerscape family is part of Freescale/NXP.

    > create mode 120000 arch/arm/boot/dts/nxp/armv7-m.dtsi

    armv7-m.dtsi is a bit confusing, because it contains a few devices at
    fixed addresses, so it looks vendor-specific at a first glance into the
    file. However, if it is actually as vendor-neutral as the name implies,
    I think it should live dts/ directly, rather than in vendor

    > rename arch/arm/boot/dts/{ => nxp}/lpc18xx.dtsi (100%)

    Here we have the NXP LPCxxxx family, which is AFAIK unrelated to the
    i.MX family (and thus the bulk of the Freescale legacy).

    > create mode 100644 arch/arm/boot/dts/vybrid/Makefile

    Vybrid is another chip family of NXP, with a good deal of Freescale
    legacy in it as evidenced by the "fsl," prefix in the devicetrees.
