Good to know.

Yes exactly that one.

OK, as along as it gets tested/used in some form, that's fine. I do agree
that DT will be more useful on that platform as it was derived from mobile

alignment with ACPI spec. The way whole power/clock management is done
with ACPI on this pulls me towards DT ;)
