In retrospect, that was impolite and I apologize for the crossover. :-(
The 83xx changes were necessary to make the bootm using libfdt work (I
have a 8360 board). If I don't push the necessary changes through
u-boot-fdt, u-boot-fdt will be impossible to use until you add the
necessary changes in the 83xx repo (and possibly vice versa). In
addition, Wolfgang would have to coordinate his pulls into the main repo
or it would break.
The cross coupling is unfortunate, but we have to have one example of a
CPU/board and libfdt coupled in order to test the libfdt changes.
I would prefer to fix the problems noted (which really are not as bad as
they look IMHO) to make one CPU+board+libfdt example work and push those
changes to Wolfgang via the u-boot-fdt repo. If you are opposed to
this, I can back out the 83xx changes and push just libfdt stuff to
Wolfgang and supply you with the set of 83xx patches which you can push
through your repo, but it will tough for others to use/test since they
will get only half a picture from each repo.
