It was attached to my earlier reply. I'm attaching it again in case it
was stripped by gmail.

Basically, each of my reviews of your patchset was done by running that
dts through dtc and inspecting statictree.c for possible bugs. Yay for
torture tests! ;-)

Oh, and we should check whether the new dts architecture supports
representing multiprocessor environments with HT links between them.
AFAICS that breaks for current svn HEAD and any of our proposed patches.
We'd need cross-referencing abilities in the dts. And I fear that nobody
will understand a dts for 8 processors in crosssed ladder configuration
with 2 selected HT links out. We need graphical tools for that.
