There's nothing RISC-V specific here.  This IP isn't defined in the RISC-V 
specifications, or anything like that.  

Apparently it's a SiFive IP block which now has a virtual IP 
implementation in QEMU in hw/riscv/sifive_test.c.  But since there's 
nothing RISC-V specific about this IP block, any QEMU system, with any CPU 
implementation, should be able to use this virtual IP, and this Linux 
driver.

For these reasons, it's better if "RISC-V" is just removed from everywhere 
in this driver.  If something needs to go in its place, "SiFive" may be 
better.
