I'm a bit unsure about this series.

On one hand, I totally agree with you ... having the xtal in DT is the
right way to do it ... when done from the start

On the other hand, things have been this way for years, they are working
and going for xtal in DT does not solve any pending issue. Doing this
means adding complexity in the driver to support both methods. It is
also quite a significant change in DT :/

I'll defer this one to Kevin
