The device tree support in RTEMS is quite rudimentary. However, in the 
BSP you don't need much. You just have to deal with the interrupt 
controller, the clock driver and an UART driver. Maybe also I2C and SPI, 
but these are simple things. The more complex drivers are in libbsd 
(USB, MMC/SDCard, Ethernet). Here we have the device tree support from 
FreeBSD. It is not as good as the device tree support from Linux 
especially if it comes down to pins and clocks since this is a real mess
