Hmmm I don't see why we need to worry about breaking "legacy" users. If
they're using an undocumented but still working method of doing
something that should be OK, but I'd like to see us update the DTS and
binding to be more forward looking so that future designs don't carry
forward badness. And not having hardware hasn't really been a problem in
the past either. We can probably have someone from Linaro test on any
affected platforms.
