Not much really. We're now printing a warning to get a people to
upgrade their systems. So with some boards we need to wait a while.

Then here are the remaining items that I'm aware of:

- A regression at least on some n900 with appended DTB not booting
  properly any longer reported by Pali

- A regression where the legacy ATAGs don't seem to get properly
  translated by the uncompress code for atag_rev at least reported
  by Pali

- A few missing .dts files for devkit8000, omap3logic, omap3stalker,
  omap3pandora and omap3touchbook

Pali and Sebastian probably know best of any other remaining
issues to drop n900 legacy booting.

If people have the boards listed above, please pitch in to do the
.dts files or send the boards to me and I can do minimal .dts
files for them.
