Thanks for doing this.

I really suggest to store information that kernel DTS is directly
re-used, thus DTS backward and forward compatibility matters, also in
Linux kernel sources. The point is that sub-arch maintainers should be
aware of it. I don't think that as DT maintainers we can efficiently
keep an eye on it. Maybe create a subsystem profile and include it to
maintainer entries of such affected platforms?
