I agree with what you say to some extent, but I believe that it is
more important to have a working solution now than to ensure that
each bindings are as unique as possible. After any suggestion of
consolidation, a move from vendor specific to generically defined
Device Tree bindings is trivial. Especially in the current stage
where adaptions and definitions are still fluid.

See my response to Linus. I do understand your view and where it comes
from. As a maintainer, I have other priorities. No offence involved,
it needs some settlement.

I'm certainly not adverse to doing this, although I'd prefer it was completed in the short-term. So should we do it?
