Oh is that so.

Rob: do we have a clear consensus on this? Then we should document
it in Documentation/devicetree/usage-model.txt.

(That document isn't part of the binding I believe, so we could define
Linux-specific behaviours in it.)

I always thought it was the other way around, that pdata took priority.

Usecase: hardcoded bootloader passer erroneous DT to a platform.
No way out. What to do? Override with pdata.
