The two really aren't mutually exclusive. Besides, fdt_checkboard() would not work in a
hush script. The C function would scan the device tree *and* read data from the hardware
and compare the two. For instance, if it says that there's a PCI device at address X, it
should check if CFG_PCI1_MEM_PHYS is set to the same value. These are the kinds of things
that can only be done in C code.
