symlinks in /proc/device-tree

Is anybody actually using one of these things in /proc/device-tree ?
- for a node name at address, symlinks from name->node and @address->node
- the fact that we remove the @address part if address is 0
I'm considering killing both of these things for 2.6.13. That will
reduce the memory footprint of the device-tree significantly (bloat in
inode cache) and it will be a more exact representation of the actual
tree. Besides, the symlinks are not really useful in practice.
