It's not the using device tree bit that creates concern for me here,
it's the fact that the board and silicon aren't being separated.

What's the difference?

+- db8500.dtsi // silicon
+-- snowball.dts // board

I have glanced at some of this stuff in the past, thanks. Now think how
that's working for people when they put the configuration for the
silicon in the same DT node as the configuration for the board...

Granted, ideally the configuration and silicon description should be separated. I don't know that is the case for us yet however. That is something I'll enforce when we have a new dts file, which will be coming very soon.
