I've just updated the dtc tarball with a new version.  Notable
	- Corrected comment parsing
	- Corrected handling of #address-cells, #size-cells properties
	- Input from device tree blobs should actually work now
	- Corrected autogeneration of "name" properties in blob/asm
	  output version < 0x10
	- Added a TODO list
