Fair enough. I wasn't feeling too good about the bindings myself. I
only went with them because I saw something similar was happening
between "raspberrypi,bcm2835-power" and "raspberrypi,bcm2835-firmware".
I'll be glad to review & test your patches whenever they are ready.

This makes commits 6 to 9 useless. Do you want me to send a v2? I can
throw in an extra change Takashi suggested and update the TODO file.
