Hi Huacai,

I have the  same consideration with you. However, the reason why I split
this dts is that these chips have significant differences.

For example, 3B1x00 have different memory and config registers layout,
Their HT config space is a delicate node, HTMSI interrupts is not
functional until 3A3000, and their syscon registers are not identical.

You may say they can be identified by PRID, but I'm not intend to spread
PRID all the way in other subsystems, thus I think dts is still the best
way to tell these differences.

Thanks
