Yes, you need it.
Hisilicon has many different development boards and those boards have some
different hardware configuration, so we need different device tree
files for them.
the original hisi,boardid is used to distinguish different boards and
used by the
bootloader to judge which device tree to use at boot-up.

Maybe add to section "Known Issues" in
is a good choice, I will update this section later.
