The controller seems to be a thrid party IP (from Synopsys) in your
SoC and there are many chances the IP will appear in some other
SOCs too. This implementation doesn't seem to take care of that
So, please either call the driver something like sata_460ex.c
or, better still, segregate the driver in two parts - SoC specific stuff
and DWC IP core driver that can be reused by other SoCs having the
same IP in future.
