Passing the device tree to the kernel and then on to the rootserver on ARM is definitely
something that should be done. In this way ARM should become more like x86 where access to
all physical memory(minus important kernel devices) is passed to the rootserver, and it
becomes its responsibility to parse the device tree and create mappings for the actual
So yes there is interest and intention, but unfortunately no timeline and many other
