Bug Description

As Device Tree starts to become a requirement to load and execute the kernel properly, would be nice if LAVA would also support loading the proper device tree file for each image that has it available together with the kernel package.

I know we don't want to mess around with the master boot partition, so one solution would be to append the device tree file that's already available at /boot (from the flashed image) into the kernel image itself, so it can be loaded and parsed during boot time.

How essential is this for current production?

Hard to say, as it changes a lot depending on the platform, but it should probably become something critical quite soon.

For example, this is already a requirement for fast models, and the device tree support for Origen is way better at the 3.3 series.
