That's correct.

TBH, I think its wrong to keep them in the kernel source at all--yes,
the same argument could be made for arch/powerpc/boot but that's been

We already have dtc kept externally to the kernel source.  Why not
keep a single site where all things necessary to powerpc linux are kept?
It could house dtc, the dt attach tool, and all the dt source files.

I doesn't matter to me where as long as its highly available and has
reasonable bandwidth.  jdl.com?  source.mvista.com?  penguinppc.org?
