AFAIK we decided that current bindings, if broken, can be redone correctly,
without caring for compatibility with old DTBs and only then, after
reviewing these new bindings by DT people, they can be stabilized.
Other issue, though, is that this patch breaks things until they get fixed
by patch 3. Support for new bindings should be added first, then users fixed
and only then old bindings can be removed.
