As this is changing the semantic of an "empty" DT, we should consider
now if there's anything else that might also need to exist in an "empty"
DT. We don't want to change this again in future if we don't have to,
given the compatiblity nightmare that's sure to result.

We should also consider if the "hypervisor" node name is sufficient (I
think it is, but let's not assume anything).

Mark.
