I could see how that might have an impact on the
functionality.... :-)

So, what should the guts block of the 8560 dts look
like? It currently has the standard:

global-utilities at e0000 {
   compatible = "fsl,mpc8560-guts";
   reg = <0xe0000 0x1000>;

MPC8560 has a guts block, but saying "has-rstcr", as
you've pointed out, is a bit of a lie. If we remove that
tag, then we'll trip the:

 printk(KERN_INFO "rstcr compatible register does not exist!\n");

which isn't the end of the world, but at the moment it
reads more like an error message, vs. an informative one.
