Is there any news on getting QEMU to parse a device tree to figure out what 
hardware to emulate?  (I.E. using the device tree code to let qemu provide 
configurable board emulations instead of hardwiring them in C code?)

Also, what would be involved in getting x86 to (at least have the option to) 
use the device tree stuff?
