are two current dtc patches being upstreamed anytime soon?

for purposes of class, i want students to run "dtc" manually to
build the dtb file for the BBB, and i notice that if i use the
meta-beagleboard layer, two patches will be applied to the source.

  the first, from oe-core, is:

--- git.orig/Makefile 2011-11-02 14:52:17.243104779 -0700
+++ git/Makefile 2011-11-02 15:06:01.555104982 -0700

        ln -sf $(LIBFDT_soname) $(DESTDIR)$(LIBDIR)/libfdt.$(SHAREDLIB_EXT)
        $(INSTALL) -m 644 $(LIBFDT_archive) $(DESTDIR)$(LIBDIR)

which seems fairly straightforward, and the second is from the
meta-beagleboard layer --
0001-dtc-Dynamic-symbols-fixup-support.patch -- for dynamic DT

  i can easily get students to check out the dtc source from, and apply those two patches
manually, but it would obviously be easier if they were eventually
folded into the repo. is there any reason those two patches won't be
eventually upstreamed?
