Doing this two-stage rocket:
Legacy -> DT -> multiplatform

Is usually the smoothest. That is what I did on U300, U8500
and will do on the Integrator.

I agree. And invariably this will confuse a lot of QEMU users
until they figure out how to boot their new image with a device
tree. But that is business as usual I guess.

I'm onto these as part of both Integrator and RealView modernization.
