The names northbridge, southbridge are basically arbitrary. I wonder
whether this is a differentiation that we should keep up in v3 at all?
It's all rather components.

In my opinion the K8T890 code should go to southbridge/via as for
example all nvidia "north bridge" code (what exactly qualifies those
bridges as north bridges?) is in southbridge, too.
