Hrm, section II (DT block format) is a description of a kernel
interface, and I think it should stay.  After all, there's nothing
that says that you have to use dtc to generate the device tree blob,
so there is no reason for the dtc source to be the only place where
the format is specified.

I have no problem with that section being copied over to the dtc

I also don't mind section IV being removed, although a sentence saying
that dtc is useful for generating dtbs, and where to find dtc, would
be useful.
