What do you mean it doesn't cover? It was added exactly to handle them:
+ - technexion,imx6q-pico-dwarf # TechNexion i.MX6Q Pico-Dwarf
+ - technexion,imx6q-pico-hobbit # TechNexion i.MX6Q Pico-Hobbit
+ - technexion,imx6q-pico-nymph # TechNexion i.MX6Q Pico-Nymph
+ - technexion,imx6q-pico-pi # TechNexion i.MX6Q Pico-Pi

You want to change both the binding (thus breaking the ABI) and update
the DTS to reflect new ABI. Then why having a binding at all?

I would assume that either binding is correct or DTS. You propose that
both are wrong and both need changes... in such case this is clearly
broken.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
