Hi, Richard!

Well, if you tell us what CPU you use, it might be possible
to give you some more details about the current status.

Example: I just moved my MPC8540ads compatible board from
arch/ppc to arch/powerpc with minor difficulties (mostly due
to my lack of experience with DT's).
I don't use an DT enabled u-boot yet, but it should also be
possible to do so. I still use the kernel-embedded DT
(cuImage) target here.
