Is this area part of memory, or a special SRAM? If it's part of memory,
I would expect this node to be under the reserved-memory node and
pointed to by some other node that uses this region. Could even be the
CPU nodes.

If it's constant then that also works. Why does it need to come from DT
at all then?
