Yes, both mainline as well as our downstream U-Boot do actually set the
memory node.

In the past some people used to set it to the smallest SKU's memory
size just to be on the safe side.

However lately it is agreed that the memory node should no longer even
be present as can be seen from e.g. arch/arm/boot/dts/tegra30-
apalis.dtsi resp. tegra30-apalis-eval.dts.

I would rather suggest going to the regular SoC, module, carrier naming
convention making it tegra20-colibri-iris.dts instead.

Yes, using mem= should only be used to force memory size for test
purpose [1].
