'name' should be the only property to cull.  You'll also need to
generate synthetic 'phandle' properties.  Plus some fluff to construct
the fdt header and memory reservation block, then split up the
structure and strings blocks.  The latter probably means you'll need
two working buffers, rather than emitting it all in one pass.
