After looking over your patches I propose that I incorporate your
generic fs2dt code instead of pulling in the dtc. Also, I use a
different segment for the dtb rather than appending it to the
zImage; I think this approach would be better as it is less
restrictive, however a kernel patch is required to set r2 to the
appropriate address on entry to the new kernel. What are your

If you are happy with this I will submit a v2 set of patches.
