Is this something that changes on a per-SoC basis, or can a specific
SoC have a different behavior depending on the version of the BootROM
it embeds (that would be quite tricky to deal with since that would
mean having different dts if you start using newer revisions of the same
If it's on a per-SoC basis, I'd recommend defining new compatibles
instead of adding this property.
