Why ? While having device-tree's in zImages is good to handle firmwares
that can't pass them, I still think that the proper thing to do is to
have the firmware provide the DT to the kernel. Did Denk decide once for
all against having DTs passed by uboot at all ? In which case, it's
probably time to consider a fork...
