The RTSC team is planning to extend the platform model to support device
peripherals. This should make it easier to:
o produce "portable" board support packages
o ensure peripherals are consistently used among independent packages

For more information see the wiki topic
http://wiki.eclipse.org/DSDP/RTSC_-_xdc.platform.ICpuDataShe et.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

This may be an opportunity to also add EDMA3- and HWA-related properties
to the platform. Then some of our resource managers (e.g. DMAN3,
EDMA3LLD, RMAN, etc) could 'auto-assign' base addrs, etc rather than
rely on the user cfg script?

I'm also wondering if, on a multi-core device, the DSP could/should be a
'peripheral' of the GPP. Codec Engine has some hard-coded uglies in our
ARM-side cfg where, given a Platform, we'd like to know more details
about the DSP (e.g. is it a C64P or C674?) - and I'm not sure there's a
reliable way to determine that across all devices(?).
