Oh, did I mention we're looking to use a flattened device tree? That way we can omit the OF client interface firmware code we currently load into

Using a flat dev tree sure sounds like the easiest approach right now.
But please structure the code (on the Linux side) in such a way that
you could use "real OF" as well, esp. since most of the code to do so
already exists.

hmm, _real_ domain firmware, but since we'd have to magically pass it stuff about the domain I think we would still use the flattened tree for that, then the real OF could be booted like linux and then start with that tree before it modifies that tree before linux actually runs.

I await the XenoSLOF patch :-*
