We can easily do both. So no worries, I can easily add SoC capabilites
support at some point.

And let's also add minimal dm3725.dtsi, am3715.dtsi and am3703.dtsi
to make things simple. The device tree is supposed to describe the
hardware, and in most cases the SoC version is fixed and need no
dynamic detection.

André, can you please add those three dtsi files since you have at
least one test case? :)
