Historically powernv specific platform drivers go in their respective
subsystem trees rather than in arch/ and I'd prefer we kept it that
way. When I added the papr_scm driver I put it in the pseries platform
directory because most of the pseries paravirt code lives there for
some reason; I don't know why. Luckily for me that followed the same
model that Dan used when he put the NFIT driver in drivers/acpi/ and
the libnvdimm core in drivers/nvdimm/ so we didn't have anything to
argue about. However, as Matthew pointed out, it is at odds with how
most subsystems operate. Is there any particular reason we're doing
things this way or should we think about moving libnvdimm users to
drivers/nvdimm/?
