Reminds me we should really look into writing, one of these days, both
for uboot, the zImage wrapper, and the kernel itself, a smarter OF path
parser that can

 - ignore spurrious /
 - handle relative path from a given node
 - handles getting passed the name without the unit address (the @ part)
   when non-ambiguous (when ambiguous, returns one of the nodes matching
   with no guarantee of which one)
 - handles getting passed the unit address without the name

That would make usage of path for "fixing up" properties or looking up
properties easier in many cases.

Any volunteer ? :-)
