Which was half-baked and terminated with extreme prejudice ;)

I don't see a safe way to allow removal of node properties without
adding a per-node lock and changing a lot of code.

If we're concerned only with newly added PHB nodes, I think we can
safely attach the new property right before the node is plugged into the
device tree, before anything else can get a reference to the new PHB
