DT for mv643xx_eth is on the way (https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/5/29/527).
We wait for the driver to surface to relax branch dependencies and then
move all DT Orion SoCs to it.

All those will happen if there is DT support for mv643xx_eth which
is the only driver left without DT and board dependencies. But there
will be no CONFIG_LACIE_DT or whatever, but just CONFIG_KIRKWOOD_DT
and board dependent stuff described in the corresponding dts.
