> From: Hugo Villeneuve <hvilleneuve at dimonoff.com>
> It doesn't seem appropriate for arch/SOC to use a board-level
> functionality (CONFIG_OF_BOARD_FIXUP), because this prevents boards
> that need to do FDT fixup from using that feature.
> Also, this code is completely dead and useless (from comments by
> Rasmus Villemoes on the mailing list):
>   - No in-tree imx8m-based board seems to set CONFIG_OF_BOARD_FIXUP
>   - The nodes which that function wants to disable don't even exist in
>     the U-Boot copy of imx8mp.dtsi.
> This code was introduced in commit 35bb60787b88. It seems to be some
> random import of code from downstream NXP U-Boot, with a commit
> message that makes no sense in upstream context.
