Its not a lot really. Most of the code is anyways required, the only extra part
is the platform specific drivers, which are replacing what the DT would have
done. So, it shouldn't be that big of a deal I suppose.

Sure, I will get as many converted as possible.

So yeah, LCD is a common usecase but the configurations aren't always shared. It
may not be an issue with private clock/regulator resources, but with shared
Though even with the private resources, we may want the clock/domains/regulators
to stay powered on and I assume that the platforms would be doing hacky stuff to
get that all working right now.
