It cannot go away once the device tree is updated, because we maintain
support for old device trees within reason.  It's not like this is core
kernel code; the cost of having this compatibility here is minimal, even
if the device trees we're staying compatible with are technically
broken.  Compare that to customer support effort if this breaks
someone's custom board with a forked device tree, or if upgrading the
device tree breaks someone's old U-Boot.
