I have Flattened Device Tree (FDT) ported to RTEMS and I have an RTEMS 
API to use it. The code is currently not available but I can make it 

This is a nice way to describe resources in a system however there are 
some catches. For example storing the blob on a disk means you need a 
blob to configure the disk's driver to read the blob so some sort of 
in-memory support is needed.

Adding support is nice because it means RTEMS can integrate to 3rd party 
tools such as Xilinx's tools for the Zynq.
