Can u-boot work on dtb trees embedded in an cuImage, at all?
How would command line arguments work without a chosen

I tried to boot a mpc823 using the 3 argument mboot command.
u-boot processed the dtb and added the chosen node correctly,
however the kernel immediately oopsed with unable to access
virtual memory when accessing the dtb memory as this memory
was not contained in the kernel MMU space.
