For what it's worth I run mainline on my Chromebook Plus (rk3399-gru-kevin),
but in order to have a somewhat working setup you need to run
4.16-rc1 + various patches from the rockchip mailing list which means
you have to keep up with the latest mainline (both kernel and devicetree)
anyway. So I'm all in favour of cleaning up the devicetree.
