Wasn't quite ready in time for 2.6.36, but .37 should be no problem.  All of 
the pending devicetree core patches are now in Linus' tree, so it is a good 
time to rebase.  When you repost I can pick them up into my tree to get some 
build test exposure.

I'll also make sure to start build testing on MIPS.  Ralf, any suggestions on 
defconfigs I should use?

Cheers,
g.
