After reading the code more closely, it appear that I spoke to quickly:
_machine is initialized before finish_device_tree() in all cases. I
beleive this problem will happen with all CHRPs since all of them have an
ISA legacy controller. So I'll keep the test
as it is, and I'll merge the fix into bk today for both 2.2 and 2.4 along
with some other prom.c changes I have here.
