Hi Nicolas,

Looks like a great start. I was glad we could work on this last week.
Some comments below.

Now, while I push strongly for .dts files to avoid 'generic'
specification, the actual board support code should try to be as
generic as possible. You may want to consider naming this
"MACH_AT91_DT" here. (more below)

You'll need to rework this. Turning on CONFIG_OF should not
disable booting using the old method.

device tree #includes are no different from other includes, You can
mis them in with the rest of the linux/ #include statements.

Following from my comment earlier, this is fine for the proof of
concept, but it isn't ready for mainline. For mainline you'll need to
get enough devices working with DT to boot the board without calling
(ek_board_init()), and then add a new board file which only calls
of_platform_populate(). To get started, you'll probably only need
serial working. Other driver can be fixed up one at a time until the
DT support is at the same level as the old board files. At that point
the old method can be removed from the tree without any regressions.
