As far as I can tell from Kconfig, SH7619 is the only plain SH-2 (not
2A) model supported by Linux. Once we convert all the legacy SH
support in the kernel over to device tree, it should be fairly trivial
to support additional models, but it might be best to start with this
one. That would actually provide a good test platform for the initial
DT conversion work.
