Thanks for your series!

I forgot that r8a7795.dtsi and r8a7796.dtsi are used for the ULCB boards, too.
So to avoid regressions, you need to make a similar change to ulcb.dtsi like you
made for salvator-common.dtsi.

In addition, r8a77995.dtsi is only used for the Draak board.
So you have to update r8a7795-draak.dtsi first, too.

I don't think we need the iommu properties and nodes at this early stage.
Ethernet works fine without them. Simon, do you agree?

P.S. scripts/dtc/dtx_diff is a great tool to compare DTBs before and after your
      changes. It would have revealed the changes for ULCB and Draak.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
