As I said, I'm talking of the uboot shipped with the devices. I do know
that barebox is doing things differently than this uboot. For
instance, with this DTB and barebox, usb should(?) work but for sure, it
won't work with this uboot.
If we merge something, it should work with all bootloaders otherwise it
would mean that the dtb is bootloader specific...
