SubjectRe: [U-Boot] [patch 2/2] Add support for building the new U-boot uImage format (FIT-format)

Why should there ever be no dtc? It is part of the Linux kernel source
tree, see arch/powerpc/boot/dtc-src

As before, I think this should not be implemented as a configuration
option; it should be selectable as separate make targets without need
to reconfigure / rebuild the kernel.

Hm... Power support would be especially interesting, of course :-)
