I think there shouldn't be anything _inherently_ x86 specific about
the drivers themselves although probably nobody uses Super-IO chips
like these outside of the PC-compatible world.

I do see that most (but not all) drivers for Super-IO controllers
packaged in openwrt currently have a TARGET_x86 dependency, so I
will submit v2 with the dependency added to these new packages.
