The IBM ones are pretty standard, it's other embedded things I'd be more
worried about.

I have a collection of device trees, but they were given to me by
various random people over the years and I'm not comfortable putting
them up in public. I looked through those and didn't see anything odd.

I'll try and get a collection of device trees from machines of mine and
put them somewhere public.

cheers
