What I mentioned is not a case of a work in progress, it's already out
in the wild, and completely changing the clearfog dts file by changing
the style of DT references will make applying the changes _much_ more
difficult - not only obviously impossible to apply the original patch,
but also quite impossible to identify the changes made downstream.

So, I'd rather armada-388-clearfog.dts is not touched at all as it _will_
cause conflicts, but I have nothing against the new style (and I actually
prefer it.)

What I'm asking is that you don't make other people's lives harder than
they need to be.
