"bootm" is intended to boot an  image  located  somewhere  in  system
memory.  It  will  pass arguments like the booargs and the FDT to the
kernel. It evaluates bootargs and substitured env vars for this. It
might not be insane to expect that it also does reasonable things to
the FDT.

I'm not in a position to determine what's reasonable there, though.
