I think so. For the 8560, the last issue was David wanting
the dts to have the address cells =2 on localbus-like nodes
and I've not heard any negative feedback on how I did it (yet).

I'll resend the 8xxx patches as a lump today for the sake
of merge convenience, with the legacy_serial change and the
extra simplebus that Scott asked for factored out separate.
