Trust me, I wish this was true, but I don't see it happening anytime soon
as bindings will always change but it is something to aspire to.

The thing is that you cant just copy/paste the Linux DTS, it won't compile
as the SoC DTSI as well as CP DTSI are different.
Otherwise having a -u-boot.dtsi would work and I honestly don't have time
to sync those and then fix all of the regressions.
