I don't think backwards compatibility will matter - the bootloaders I've
come across don't ship DTBs with them and I don't think there are any
ralink devices using the upstream MT7620 DT.

John might have some thoughts on backwards compat though.

Shall I respin this patch with the earlier nodes (intc etc) renamed and
then send a patch later to rename the serial ports in the DT and kernel
(assuming there are no backwards compatibility issues)?
