I've replied to the patch:

Based on v5.9-rc5, before the patch:

[ 0.652887] cpuidle: using governor menu
[ 12.349476] No ATAGs?

After the patch:

[ 0.650460] cpuidle: using governor menu
[ 12.262101] No ATAGs?

I'm using an AM57xx EVM, whose DT is not upstream, but it's essentially
a am57xx-beagle-x15-revb1.dts (it includes that DTS) with a few
additional nodes for GPIO keys, LCD panel, backlight and touchscreen.
