I fully agree with Mark. There are 2 ways of solving this:

a) Do things in steps that don't break anything, i.e.:
	1) add new bindings to the driver,
	2) update DTS files,
	3) remove old bindings from the driver.

b) Do all the things above atomically, in one patch.

Personally, I'm a fan of method a), but if it requires much effort then 
method b) can be used as a fallback.

Best regards,
