OK gotcha. Will this be a suzaku platform option, or microblaze arch
option? If it's microblaze-wide, can you do it so the current romfs
behaviour is the default?

Sounds good - again, my only request is for it to keep current platforms
working by defalut.

OK so I couldn't help myself - the restructure patch applies cleanly and
at still makes a kernel on my configuration. I won't be able to test it
on a board until Tuesday, but if Greg or David are reading this then I'm
happy for it to go straight in.
