Is there any more information on how the "of_*" ( e.g. of_node_put ,  
of_find_node_by_type ) functions should be implemented in  the 
"arch/powerpc/platforms/myplatform/myboard_setup.c" file
or is the documentation the existing "*.c" c files under 
arch/powerpc/platforms ?

Since I have a 82xx board I assume that "myboard_setup.c" file shall be 
put under arch/powerpc/platforms/82xx.

Cheers // Matias
