Hi all,

As part of the unified features in u-boot thread I said that I would
work to get distros to agree to a common location that u-boot will be
able to assume exists for it to transparently load dtbs from for us.

I would like to propose /boot/dtb/

I think it needs to be in /boot/ to allow for booting from systems
with / and /boot on separate partitions. I believe Ubuntu and hence
Debian put them in /lib somewhere today.  Fedora puts them
in /boot/dtb-<kernel version>. im not sure where the other distros put
them. 

I think that until they are decoupled from the kernel Fedora would
have /boot/dtb be a symlink to the latest installed kernel. once its
decoupled it would be the location where the dtbs are installed.

Can We all agree to implement ensuing that dtb files will be available
in /boot/dtb/

Regards

Dennis
