Seems linux-3.13 has dts for it, so at least basic support should be
doable easily without kernel patching.

I have scripted things ready only for Raspberry Pi - but that's a bit
of an exception in arm world how things work.

I do have Wandboard Quad here as build box, and I have multiplatform
kernel for it, so just enabling beaglebone support on that kernel should
be enough.

However, that is not scripted yet. I would need to fix the kernel build
stuff to include dtbs and package u-boot + needed scripts for it. And
finally patch our setup-bootable (or write a specific script) to prepare
the arm images.

I'll look into this sometime near future.
