Hi Neo,

actually the grouping evolved around the obvious, and are mainly driven 
by the high-level interfaces that these groups implement (netdev, SAUL, 
...). For everything that doesn't fit one of these groups, I'd say we 
just put them 'ungrouped' into the drivers folder. Once we find that it 
is feasible to create a new group, we can always refactor later...
