We have a 3-way coordination between you, Kim with the 83xx, and myself 
with libfdt and right now I'm pretty busy.  I have not had the time to 
figure out where the routine should go and get together a set of patches 
for libfdt and 83xx to convert over to the New Improved helper routines.

If you are willing to figure out where to put it in libfdt, I'll push 
forward from this end but it may be a couple of weeks before I can put 
some time in on it (unless my more "urgent" duties get boring ;-).

In the last merge window, Kim & I traded some patches back and forth and 
git figured it out OK, so we should be able to apply the same patch to 
both your and my (and Kim's?) repositories and have it all work out.
