Actually there is more information than what we currently keep in the
device tree. We can and have to put it in there at some point: PCI
slots, IRQ routing, ... CMOS config settings (?), used devices a la
which serial port to use (?) All this stuff could go to a device tree.
Then we could use it as the one data structure that replaces the
lbtable, too. It might or might not work.
