SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/6] Introducing Device Tree Overlays
From
Our use case is partial reconfiguration of the FPGA.  This will be
driven from userspace, so the bitstream to program the FPGA will come
from userspace, then the overlay for the DT, also from userspace.

So we want to take a compiled partial device tree and simply 'cat' it
to a point under /proc, such as 'cat new-ip.dtb > /proc/device-tree'
