I'm sorry, but you still miss the point.

If someone wants to use another bootloader than U-boot (or a possible
patched barebox), or none other than the bootlets to boot directly the
Linux (with an appended device tree), you will still have no way to get
the NIC from the OCOTP, and I'm sorry, but it is just wrong.

The kernel shouldn't rely on a particular feature of a given bootloader.
