I get this when I try to boot my board:
## Booting image at 00200000 ...
   Image Name:   oskernel02a:p1a:99
   Created:      2007-12-13   9:59:43 UTC

   Loading Device Tree to 007fe000, end 007ff6f9 ... OK
WARNING: could not create /bd_t FDT_ERR_NOSPACE.
ERROR: /bd_t node create failed - must RESET the board to recover.
Resetting the board.

I have tried different combinations of -S and -R options to dtc,
but nothing helps:
dtc -S 2000 -R 2000 -f of-tmcu.dts -O asm > of-tmcu.S

If I remove the chosen node from my dts file, I get the error when
libfdt tries to create a chosen node.

I am using dtc 1.0.0 and u-boot 1.3.1
