v1 refers to Medfield/Clovertrail, v2 to Baytrail/CHT. The differences 
are minor and centered on different register definitions or additional 
features/bug corrections. We left the v1 code in so far but we could 
probably remove it since it's not tested anyway. The question is if we 
remove this v1 code and indirect calls now or later, I was planning to 
add DP audio support and making more changes would make the integration 
more difficult.
