A great unification would also be to stop having a different target for
FAM10 and non-FAM10 boards. This is more complicated for users than a
bit of duplicated code. (And it will bite us again for Fam10 + x, and
for Nehalem and co, basically for every chipset with a memory controller
in the CPU instead of on the board)

So how do we fix our device model, which still assumes a board has
exactly one choice of memory controller?
