Just found a device tree bug which corrupts __machine_type.
In arch/arm/kernel/devtree.c at end of setup_machine_fdt()

- __machine_arch_type = mdesc->nr;
+ __machine_arch_type = mdesc_best->nr;

This was stopping some Beagleboard drivers from being initialised as
they were doing run-time checking for machine type.
