These files are useless, they don't contain device nodes for anything
other than the UARTs. There is no existing system that has only UARTs
and no other devices, so these files cannot be (and can never be) used
anywhere.

Since the boot firmware in all real, and emulated, systems is supplying
correct DTBs, we should consider not merging these files, and removing
the likewise useless thunder-88xx.dts thunder-88xx.dtsi
