Ray is right. I just spoke to one of the people here with knowledge
of the HW, and this is not related at all to the 4708/9/5301X. It MAY
have some of the same peripherals, but the core is different (Cortex
A7 instead of A9).

I think we are best off to change the name and turn this into a
separate device tree, driver base, etc. I wasn't able to get a code
name, so perhaps simply call it "BCM53573".

Thanks,
Jon
