I think this is the right way to go. Get ACK from Arnd or Olof or Kevin
and I will merge this.
I am simply just afraid that if a lot of zynq customers will ask for it
we can will end up with a lot of zynq/zynqmp based dts files in the
kernel and arm-soc guys will stop this that it is simply too much and
won't accept +1 case.

Michal
