Hmm, I guess.  There really isn't anything about the device tree that  
is Linux specific.  Other OSes could choice to use it.  But lets  
argue about that one once I've got the mechanism in which we pass the  
blob in via the bootm command.

The only difference I see would be that the address of the blob would  
be implicit if the blob was built into u-boot.  We would still use a  
passed in blob via the bootm command if given.
