Ok. I definitely agree with the long-term goal.

I think for many of them, we can do a 'blind' conversion to DT, and ask
the users who have posted patches or even submitted support for those
boards to test the DT. But I don't think we should move things into
mach-mvebu if there are still legacy non-DT Kirkwood platforms
supported in mach-kirkwood. So either we convert them to the DT, or we
remove the support for them if no-one is really interested. But I
believe in most cases, converting them to DT should be quite easy.
