The upstream kernel already has am335x-boneblack-common.dtsi and
am335x-sancloud-bbe.dts files, since 2016 and 2018 respectively. As
these files fell out of sync over 4 years ago I've assumed there is no
need to keep them in sync. We could try to resync things but that would
lead to an unnecessary risk of breakage, I don't have every BeagleBone
Black derivative board on hand to fully test such a resync.
