Those patches might be useful - I have not reviewed them closely - but
they are not necessary.

The FSBL already supplies a DTB to Linux. I assume the U-boot port works
the same way.

I haven't switched to U-boot yet for these driver tests, so I personally
have been using the open-source FSBL (freedom-u540-c000-bootloader) with
the following trivial patches applied:

https://github.com/sifive/freedom-u540-c000-bootloader/tree/dev/paulw/supply-fsbl-dtb-v5.1-rc4

The fsbl/ux00_fsbl.dtb file can be symlinked to the kernel DTB output,
e.g., ~/linux/arch/riscv/boot/dts/sifive/hifive-unleashed-a00-fu540.dtb.
