Hi Stefan,

That's a good point. The original reason comes from u-boot in fact, I
just sent the patch here as u-boot is syncing the dts files from the kernel.

U-boot uses the same defconfig `configs/rpi_arm64_defconfig` for
different RPi versions, which have different mmcblk ids numbering.

In order to use bootcount support in u-boot, the config option
CONFIG_SYS_BOOTCOUNT_EXT_DEVPART needs to be filled with the fixed
dev/part ids. In general I'd expect mmcblk0 to be eMMC/SD, which is not
in this case, at least for RPi4.

Anyway, this is probably something to be discussed on the u-boot mailing
list, not here.

Thanks,
Ariel
