Yes, for two reasons:

1) The DTS is supposed to describe the hardware, regardless as to whether 
there are drivers for everything.  There's no audio support, but I have the 
SSI node there anyway.

2) We will eventually support the SPI in the mainline kernel.  I think our 
plan is to merge the SPI and eSPI drivers together first.
