this wouldn't make the mess smaller, IMHO. My idea is to add a helper
function, which deals with all the possible sources of dtbs, which
could be used instead of fw_passed_dtb. This gets rid of the ugly
#ifdefry in head.S and hopefull makes future changes less error prone.


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a
good idea.                                                [ RFC1925, 2.3 ]
