Sorry to be unclear, I only ment that the dt sources themselves are in
the kernel, not say, in the uboot repository or otherwise.

At least on ARM Kirkwood these sorts of differences are minimized by
having Linux know how to reprogram the SOC's address map registers
when it starts up .. Although that is helped by having all the boot
loaders put the address map control registers at the same address ;)
