Right, I did find a way to reproduce it locally. It's indeed the change in
fdtdec_setup() that break this platform. Specifically
board_fdt_blob_setup() in board/xilinx/common/board.c will return -ENXIO if
the DTB is not found. Apparently that's ok for this platform so returning
0 there fixes the boot. It's also another reason why we need the errno
instead of just checking the pointer ....
Want me to send a v4 of the OF_HOSTFILE version?
