Not quite. I had for example a 5 liner rejected by a maintainer saying he can't
accept any code which adds new platform code to ARM.
And since the plan was to switch device tree anyway at sometime, since it
should allow to implement some of the hacks which are currently in the om tree
in a more nicer way, now should be a good time to switch.
