The idea is to add a guide for platforms (x86, Power8, DPAA, DPAA2, ThunderX, OcteonTX, Armada).
We could move the x86 tuning from the QSG to this platform guide.
For the SoCs, it is also a good way to reference docs for the drivers related to the platform.

Santosh, I know you like referencing previous discussions. It's good.
It should not prevent you from doing a summary where needed :)

Thanks for bringing this idea to live.
