Could someone elaborate a little more about "ibm,drc-indexes"?  I was
imagining that it is just metadata, and likely to be best represented as
properties for other devices, not a device itself.  But, I obviously
don't know what I'm talking about. :)

But, I guess the OF tree could be considered a system device, all by
itself.  Then, it's free to use whatever layout it desires, right?
