That was kind of my point, the driver code AFAIK already contains support
for these SoC's.

I would either expect the patch to remove support from the DT docs AND the
driver, or leave it as is.

It seems odd to only change the DT docs, and become unaligned to the
code (this assumes I'm looking at the latest patchset here 
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/4/1088 which includes support for these SoCs).
