my only concern is that /proc/device-tree/model takes precedence over
/proc/cpuinfo in any case with no fallback to the latter. So if any ARM SoC
gets device-tree enabled by a backport it might potentially need a change to
flash-kernel, if the "Hardware" string does not match up with what the model
file delivers.

Bdale argues that the device-tree changes could potentially incur other changes
so an update of flash-kernel makes sense instead of the fallback solution.

@debian-boot: Is it ok to unblock flash-kernel at this point or should that be
done post-beta1?

Kind regards
