ok - thanks for confirming - this also means that existing compatible
flags will have to change - but they were present solely to encode the
offset of setup and control from each other.

Considering that we never had any dtsi in upstream (since they were
all pending clock dts support for TI platforms), I will go with the
assumption of not needing to maintain backward compatible for dtbs
that could never have been generated in upstream kernel.
