We need to match the above list of "machines" with the root node and "np" here
points to the root node.. and ...

Its used here.

For boot-constraints to work for any device, it is extremely important to add
the constraint before the device is probed by its driver, otherwise the driver
would end up re-configuring the resources. There is no other way then having
this order dependency here.
