For the record, and admittedly not quite an answer to
your issue at all, though I feel it would mitigate the
pain dramatically, I have a version of the DTS file that
uses my new expression language to completely abstract
out the 32/36-bit differences and compile a DTB for either
with the single flip of a -DUSE_36_BIT handed to the dtc
command line.

Even if no one cares.
