Pay no attention to the man behind the dts!
Seriously, though, it's quite fragile right now. We probably need to
change u-boot to correctly number those things. And we should
probably change the dts files for each board to have any soldered-on
Right now, though, we'd settle for being able to *use* those devices
under a default setting.
