Would it then be a bus following the pattern we chiseled out for
the soc bus? (Greg, Lee & Arnd architectured this.)

There we needed a struct device * on an overarching level to
tie in the sysfs entries reading out the SoC properties. But
it would be the same thing with in-kernel accessors for these
properties.

So it would be the same pattern above with a board bus, in
DT syntax:

board {
soc {
};
};

Yours,
Linus Walleij
