+ARM Marvell SoCs
+================
+
+This document lists all the ARM Marvell SoCs that are currently
+supported in mainline by the Linux kernel. As the Marvell families of
+SoCs are large and complex, it is hard to understand where the support
+for a particular SoC is available in the Linux kernel. This document
+tries to help in understanding where those SoCs are supported, and to
+match them with their corresponding public datasheet, when available.

+ Comments:
+
+ * This line of SoCs originates from the XScale family developed by
+ Intel and acquired by Marvell in ~2006. The PXA21x, PXA25x,
+ PXA26x, PXA27x, PXA3xx and PXA93x were developed by Intel, while
+ the later PXA95x were developed by Marvell.
+
+ * Due to their XScale origin, these SoCs have virtually nothing in
+ common with the other (Kirkwood, Dove, etc.) families of Marvell
+ SoCs, except with the MMP/MMP2 family of SoCs.

+
+Long-term plans
+---------------
+
+ * Unify the mach-dove/, mach-mv78xx0/, mach-orion5x/ and
+ mach-kirkwood/ into the mach-mvebu/ to support all SoCs from the
+ Marvell EBU (Engineering Business Unit) in a single mach-<foo>
+ directory. The plat-orion/ would therefore disappear.
+
+ * Unify the mach-mmp/ and mach-pxa/ into the same mach-pxa
+ directory. The plat-pxa/ would therefore disappear.
