Given that most of your comments described some very fundamental changes (esp switching to DTB) to the structure of our port, we've decided we'll probably start from scratch and fix the issues you outlined as we reimplement our platform.

At the moment, we're working on getting a basic DTB-booting kernel working so our next patch will be starting from basics.
