I know folks like to ignore this, but this patch breaks AOSP on db845c. :(

In the exact same way an earlier patch broke HiKey960:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CALAqxLWGujgR7p8Vb5S_RimRVYxwm5XF-c4NkKgMH-43wEBaWg@mail.gmail.com/

(which I still have to carry a revert for).

I get that this change is useful so more dynamic userland can find
devices using consistent naming with future kernels (but doesn't the
dynamic userland have to handle the case for older kernels as well?)
But for userland that uses static configs, its painful as updating
userland to use the new node ids then causes older kernels to fail.

I'm looking into how we might be able to probe and set the property
dynamically, but AOSP's init system is far more aligned to static
configs.

This will probably be ignored again, but it would be nice if we could
have a release where DTS changes don't break userland for one of my
boards. As it feels like its been awhile.

thanks
