Note the main reason why they pushed back to openembedded was because
it was a requirement for windriver's toolchain instead of fully
upstream :).
Anyways I pushed the octeon3 changes upstream so I did not have to
support windriver or openembedded folks they could just grab the patch
from upstream.
