Can you point out the DT in question?

I believe this commit is not needed in the proposed (i.e. duplication) shape.
The fwnode supports primary and secondary ones. Thus, we may create a
pair of fwnodes when they will unify properties per device with
properties per child together (child is primary and device, i.e.
parent, is secondary).
