The only reason cpu/soc are in separate directories is because there
is a many to one relationship w.r.t. mainboards and said components.
I'm guessing you are thinking these are the same as well? So it's
duplication of Makefile recipes and potential duplication of SPD data?

The ordering of how the spds are built is very much a property of the
mainboard because different stuffing options have memory config GPIOs
set differently in order to know what memory was actually stuffed on
the board.
