In that case, "libfdt: FDT_ERR_BADVERSION" is a really useless error message. Please
change it to something like, "Cannot modify this version (v16) of the device tree".
Now that we support multiple version of the device tree, it is very important that error
message are clear. On a working system, it's unlikely people will update their device
tree. They'll just update the kernel and U-Boot, and so people using older versions of
the device tree need to be told very clearly what they can and can't do.
