I'm a little confused. CONFIG_OF_FLAT_TREE is needed to boot any powerpc kernel. Are you
saying that the two options are mutually exclusive? Shouldn't CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT be a
subset (instead of an alternative) to CONFIG_OF_FLAT_TREE? That is, you need to define
CONFIG_OF_FLAT_TREE in order for CONFIG_OF_LIBFDT to be recognized?
Maybe I should have been paying more attention to your libfdt work, but I was assuming you
were just going to alter the back-end handling of OF trees, not break existing code.
