^^^^^^^

Moving early_init_dt_scan_root() to inside early_init_dt_verify()
puts something that has nothing to do with verifying the fdt
into a function whose purpose is the verify. It hides the side
effect of initializing the dt_root_addr_cells and dt_root_size_cells
variables.

I suggest creating a new function early_init_dt_scan_init_pre_dt_fixup(),
move the chunk of code there instead of to early_init_dt_scan_nodes(),
and call the new function from setup_machine_fdt(), just before
calling mdesc->dt_fixup(). This would be a little bit more code,
but more clearly showing the intent.
