No I think the eeprom routine should be saved as it is now for niche
vendors and hobbyists. At the very least an accessible versions
repository or CVS containing all prior versions of eeprom implementation
should be available, a la a new " bitkeeper " or whatever retrieval
interface Linus and collaborators decide on.
One project where linux+eeprom may be used:
Nut OS API
int NutNetLoadConfig (CONST char *name)
Load network configuration from EEPROM.
int NutNetSaveConfig (void)
Save network configuration in EEPROM.

At the very least your patch doesn't do a thorough enough job of
removing the dead code -- there is no good reason to move the unused
code into ns83820.c.
Also, someone needs to go around refactoring eeprom code out of the
network drivers at some point.
