I agree. I just searched for imx8mm and replicated the lines.

The upstream device trees could be extended, but that's out of scope
for barebox support. I don't think we should hardcode this into
the barebox device tree.

But barebox doesn't seem to do anything different respective to that

What would you suggest we do here (in barebox)?
