IIRC, your original patch did the parsing in parse_bootinfo() or so in
arch/ppc/kernel/setup.c which means each new driver bi_rec needs to
modify arch/ppc/kernel/setup.c, which isn't nice.  What we need is
something like how we save Motorola residual data or bd_info stuffs
(memcpy in platform_init).
