Hi Grant,

> Currently, the kernel uses CONFIG_DEVICE_TREE to wrap a kernel image
> with a fdt blob which means for any given configuration only one dts
> file can be selected and so support for only one board can be built
> This patch moves the selection of the default .dts file out of the kernel
> config and into the bootwrapper makefile.  The makefile chooses which
> images to build based on the kernel config and the dts source file
> name is taken directly from the image name.  For example "cuImage.ebony"
> will use "ebony.dts" as the device tree source file.

Cool stuff. This should be the last step to enable multiplatform builds on
8xx etc. as Arndt asked a few days ago ;)
