So I think in sum, I think the path today is to see if Rob will accept
that patch and if not, either rework based on feedback or if the
feedback is "this is U-Boot centric atm, not appropriate" we'll go with
the path of removing nodes before the OS gets the tree, which I think is
a generic enough bit of framework that we'll need regardless, for 2.0.
