Using device tree just invites code that is not usedI can write my own flattened device tree parser if necessary. It's a
tree in an array. And having a general posix API invites code that is
not used on your target: making a powerful general purpose mechanism
doesn't mean I need load code I'm not using.
Common data format: good thing. Device tree format is ugly and
incoherent but so's the problem space it's dealing with and it means I
don't have to do it.
GNU/Linux isn't: Linux=GPLv2, GNU=GPLv3+, they can't share code.
Either it's "mere aggregation", or a license violation. Pick one.
