Yes - the DT4VE will be (hopefully :-) merged in 3.4, but is already
available in LT kernel and in arm-soc repo. Single zImage can be used to
boot V2P-CA9, V2P-CA5s, V2P-CA15 (this platform is a bit unstable
though, and I haven't tried LPAE configuration yet), FPGA board with A7
setup and RTSM_VE-AEMv7 model. The coretile DTSes are available in
kernel, the rest live in our http://linux-arm.org/git?p=arm-dts.git DTS
repo (there will be more as I get them working on other models).

The current main problem is CLCD driver DT support, or rather lack of
it, but this is the first thing I'll take care of as soon as I can (I'm
out of office this week, so I may replay to emails with substantial
delay)

Cheers!
