Good job! Beware though that SLOF is GPL- and OFW is MIT-Licensed (except for the OBP parts which are under BSD), so when borrowing the code the minimal exchange entity is a file.
Are you sure about SLOF being GPL? It looks like it has BSD style licence: https://github.com/aik/SLOF/blob/master/LICENSE
Ups, my bad.
All the code copied from SLOF is in a single file though but if we combine it with QEMU which is GPL the whole may be under GPL anyway.
This is exactly my point. OFW is not the part of QEMU, so it should not be re-licensed.
But I think the OFW with fdt parsing from SLOF is still under BSD licence. Maybe an additional IBM copyright line may need to be mentioned to satisfy licence terms.
