HI Neil,
	The same code of low-level HW driver is shared with different OSs (kernel, uboot etc) and different framework. If we introduce rte_internal in these low-level hw files, it will be a big maintenance issue for NXP. Everytime there is a change or upgrade, it will be a pain. 

Regards,
Hemant
