Why not start with the latest version?

This is not expressed in the device tree, though it is marked reserved
by U-Boot in the reserve map (part of the dtb, but not part of the
actual tree).

That's the "soc" node.

/localbus at ffe05000/nor at 0,0/

...but it's at 0xef00_0000 according to the tree you attached.

Read the ePAPR spec for a description of how the ranges property works.

These are encoded in the ranges property of the relevant PCIe node (see
version 1.0 of the ePAPR spec for how), but I don't see one with those
specific addresses.  I don't know what the [1:2] is supposed to mean.

Not represented in the device tree.  The device tree shows NAND at this

/localbus at ffe05000/nand at 1,0/

...but with a different address, as noted above.

U-Boot fills in the reg property.
