Why would anybody use a new dtb on an old kernel ? I have not tagged
this change for stable, it will only apply to DTBs in new kernels, won't
it ?

That's not the first time DTS have to change for new kernels. For
instance, some time ago I had to replace all 'gpios' property by a set
of 'rdy-gpio', 'nce-gpio', 'ale-gpio' and 'cle-gpio' properties to
continue using 'gpio-control-nand' driver.
