 As other said the OHCI support is currently in phab, I need to look
what's missing (if anything is missing) and commit it.
 For the DTS part you should be able to use the dts from
sys/gnu/dts/arm/sun7i-a20-olinuxino-lime2.dts without any problem.
 I don't have a lime2 myself but I've been using the a20-som-evb for
Allwinner dev for some times now.
