This patch adds adds very basic support for booting tegra with a
device tree. It simply allows the existing machine_descs to match
against the tegra compatible values so that the kernel can boot.
Kernel parameters and the initrd pointer is read out of the tree
instead of atags.

This is not complete device tree support. This change will be
reverted when a new machine_desc is added that can populate the
device registrations directly from data in the tree instead of using
hard coded data. That change will be made in a future patch.

v2: Fixed cut-and-paste error in commit text

Shouldn't this sentence follow the --- tearline?

Nope! It is actually quite useful for the version information to show
up in the commit text. That way you know *exactly* which version got
merged. dwmw2 pointed that out to me a few months back.

Well, I think that depends on the patch. If you have say 9 revisions with significant changes (that's what I actually had) and the revision history far exceeds the original patch description, then this will just become too ugly I think...

WBR, Sergei
