After first look I can say some yes RTC, WDG and maybe TIM seem similar rest 
no. General feeling is that they didn't use any FIFO. 
Summarazing : I'm afaraid that differences between STR7 and STR9 are to big.

I very glad. I think any kind of help increase quality of software.

I agree it's good time to think about structure of ST HAL's layer.
I implemented it in such manner :
Drivers :
devs/"type of driver"/arm/str9
and HAL
with to directories board dependent "mmstr912" and common for STR9 "var"
Every new development board will be located in hal/arm/str9/ with own name as 
it's doing for other hal implementation.

Maybe it should be created common stub  hal/arm/st"something"/var which 
provide hal function for STR9 and STR7 as well, platform dependent code as 
it's done i.e. "mmstr912". In turn drivers which are totally different  
should be separated e.g.
devs/"type of driver"/arm/str7
devs/"type of driver"/arm/str9
