How different are these from the ones hosted in [1] ?

On argument is that we want to take the DTS out of device tree as
firmware is responsible for generating them. Alternatively, we may be
duplicating resulting in discrepancies over time by coping it into kernel.

Since users of ARM TF must be able to access these, I am not sure if it
makes sense to merge these. Or we remove it from ARM TF to avoid any
conflicts/discrepancies.

Thoughts ?
