Meh, it's not really much hassle for the distributions - it's all
handled by the kernel, they don't need to explicitly do anything.

None of the machine-specific stuff has ever been a hassle getting stuff
merged, problems have always been in the drivers for the devices which
device tree isn't going to make a blind bit of difference to (other than
the usual discussions about what exactly the device tree should look
