This is what you said before and it still doesn't make much sense to me.
I'd expect that if anything your first statement would be the opposite
of what happens - it seems like your non-DT code is doing something
really odd. If anything I'd expect adding a DT to add duplicate
registrations, I'd not expect it to remove registrations.

What I'd expect is that if we can figure out that we need to register
the AB8500 automatically without any information from DT then we should
be able to figure out exactly the same thing in the non-DT case. I
would therefore expect that the change would instead be something which
removes the other source of registrations.
