Hi Antoine

Something which needs to be discussed for both this patchset and the
previous one, is backwards compatibility of the device tree.

As far as i can see, these changes are not backwards compatible.
Somebody trying to boot a new kernel with a old DT blob is going to
have trouble.

How do we want to handle this?
