Unfortunately, we cannot do this because it introduces incompatibility
(data loss) for users who may have some data stored in "free space".

I should have insisted on a lot of padding for the u-boot partition or
asked not to add partitions to DT at all. For now the only solution is
to use command line partitions. They take precedence over DT partitions.

Thanks,
Sekhar
