I haven't really maintained the device tree infrastructure in QEMU for a long
time by now. I also haven't seen Peter work on the code for the last 2 years,
so let's put it into Odd Fixes to make room for others to step up :).

Alex and I just noticed that we didn't pick up this
MAINTAINERS patch for the "Device Tree" section.
In the interim Peter Crosthwaite has also removed himself
from maintainership, so by default this will move into
the "Orphan" state. Is anybody interested in taking up
the maintainership role here? In practice it doesn't really
need much care as mostly it's dealt with by the people
who maintain the boards that use the dtb utility code
(currently arm, ppc, riscv) and there's not much change
in this area.

I am happy to take this over. I have a fair bit of experience with
device trees so it should be straight forward.

I can send a patch adding me as a maintainer when I'm back in the
office next week.

I'm glad you step in for this :) I was thinking about volunteering you ;)

If you want, you can add me as a reviewer (R:).  I don't actually work
that much with the generic dev tree code in qemu, but as libfdt
maintainer I have some perspective on it.
