Well, my understanding is that there's DT patches around for Versatile.
OMAP and MX5 are both heading for DT. I'm less certain about the Orion
and Kirkwood stuff, but as they're only about 4 years old, I would hope
that there was some active movement for these.

The iop32x and ixp4xx stuff hasn't seen much in the way of maintenance
so its highly likely that these won't be converted to DT unless someone
with the hardware decides to step up and do it.

So, that means your list should reduce down to five kernels, or three if
the Orion/Kirkwood stuff gets converted to DT.
