The driver doesn't need to be 100% correct.  Drivers are easy to
change if they aren't quite right.  There are no long term

However, the device tree issues must be addressed before it is merged
and deployed.  Otherwise we end up having to support poorly designed
trees over the long term.

So, I'm okay with merging the driver *minus* the .dts and
booting-without-of.txt changes.
