Yes, my plan is to have what's already in the 'mvebu' branches for
3.16, i.e the migration to DT of a small number of Orion5x machines, as
well as the corresponding dependencies (pinctrl support, clock support,

Then, for 3.17, I'll try to:

 * convert more Orion5x boards to DT
 * support PCIe through DT
 * move to multiplatform

Of course, that's a purely tentative schedule, Orion5x is really a
spare time effort today.
