I think we should drop the "DS" because that's a name applied to
certain Freescale reference boards.

Is being a CoreNet board really something meaningful with respect to
KVM?  I don't see the connection.

Also, if these are KVM creations, shouldn't there be a "kvm" in the
compatible string somewhere?
