Yes, thanks, I'm pretty familiar with the kernel code for mach-sunxi...

Barebox is not the kernel. And there's already a number of other
architectures that are supported in barebox that boot a kernel that
supports only the device tree, like Jean-Christophe said, such as imx,
mxs, highbank, at91, etc...

So, really, there's nothing fancy about supporting an architecture which
*kernel* requires device tree.
