I think it's OK.  If another architecture supports similar
functionality, then "drivemap" would still be fine, even if the
implementation is different.  If an architecture doesn't support it, the
command won't exist.

It's very unlikely that there will be two different mechanisms for drive
remapping, each of which should be available to the users.  And even
then, a switch could be added to force the preferred mechanism.
