Well I can agree OMAP 3 has more firepower, and that we will be making
6410 device first. But I don't really see that Ben Dooks' work
rewriting the 6410 BSP is going to give inherently worse results than
what they have; he did mention the OMAP tree when I met him and did not
seem to feel it was in great shape. The fresh implementation will at
least have zero bitrot and use latest stuff.

We have to compare what's around by then, not what's around now, to make
a decision then. If there are no other competing devices at the same
level (I imagine in some months there will be) then OMAP 3 is looking
good by default.
