Comment(by dsd):

 The contents are nearly the same, but /proc/device-tree uses a different
 way of representing addresses, so some directory names change.

 A symlink would work in some cases, but other packages (such as bitfrost)
 explicitly try and mount /ofw and so on. /ofw is an OLPC-ism and should
 die, /proc/device-tree is upstream, thats why I suggest that we move
 directly to looking at /proc/device-tree first (its the first step in
 removing all /ofw references).
