You want to change the device tree that is passed to Linux, right? In
this case you can use of_register_fixup(). We were talking about
changing the device tree that barebox uses for itself. For this
everything after core_initcall will work. It should be early enough
though so that the device that is ought to be changed has not probed, so
I suggest doing it as early as possible, that would be
