Because I want to avoid make the decision right now. We are on rev1.x
silicon and I want to avoid greatly having to spawn a new .dts just
for "fsl,elbc-1.2.1" that has some errata fix in it. If dtc was
smarter and I had less duplication between the 40-50 .dts we have for
our various parts I wouldn't care that match.

I was hoping that Poonam would look at doing that, but there isn't
anything right now.
I can put out some code for u-boot to address the specific elbc issue
if that will resolve this.
