Kernel device tree gets modified with bootm command when CONFIG_OFDEVICE is enabled

When passing a custom device tree to the kernel using the 'bootm' 
command I see the device tree gets 'fixed up' when the CONFIG_OFDEVICE 
option is enabled. Probably this should not be the case when the dtb is 
passed to the kernel?

This happens on line common/bootm.c:395:

     oftree = of_get_fixed_tree(data->of_root_node);

Should this not be changed to:

     oftree = of_flatten_db(data->of_root_node);

Kind regards,
