The reason Segher is freaking out is because he wants to keep OF alive
in the future while the kernel is running.... (at least with SLOF)

I think that would require a different entry point with no flattened
tree, and changing of all the OF accessors to call OF instead of walking
an in-kernel tree. That is far from our current target though.
