OK, I guess my problem is in understanding the difference between (1)
a platform device where we use the acpi_match_table[] to locate
devices with matching ACPI IDs, and (2) a device where we use
pnp_register_driver() or acpi_bus_register_driver() to locate devices
with matching ACPI IDs.

They seem similar to me. For example, take a PNP0A03 PCI host bridge.
This seems like a platform device since there's no native hardware
method to enumerate it. The ACPI namespace gives us a way to find it.
We use acpi_bus_register_driver() to bind a driver to it. The driver
has the struct acpi_device * and can access any ACPI state it needs.
The driver supplies .add() and .remove() methods, so in principle the
driver doesn't need to know anything about hotplug (assuming the ACPI
core handles hotplug correctly, which it doesn't yet).

How is the SPI controller different than this? Is there some logical
difference that requires a different framework? Or are you proposing
that we get rid of acpi_bus_register_driver() and migrate everything
to this new framework?
