Also FYI, I have assembled all Matt's 85xx related U-Boot patches,
along with the corresponding 86xx updates, into the u-boot-86xx.git
tree on:


This U-Boot separates out the DTS files, but allows the DTB
to be downloaded.  It can then update it and hand it off to
either an 85xx or 86xx linux kernel.

I use these commands, roughly:

    # build U-boot and Linux as usual

    $ dtc -f -V 0x10 -I dts -O dtb \
        linux-2.6-86xx/arch/powerpc/boot/dts/mpc8641_hpcn.dts \

    In U-boot now:

    > tftp 1000000 loeliger/uImage.8641
    > tftp 900000 loeliger/mpc8641_hpcn.dtb

    > bootm 1000000 - 900000
