As I said, I'm really not sure. On the one hand it's nicer and it will
be easier to check devicetree against schematics, but mass-converting
them makes me anxious. Andy did convert the rk3288-popmetal
board which is somewhat sparsely used I think. If anything breaks with
Firefly, Rock, Veyron etc we might make a lot of people unhappy :-) .

But having boards use both paradigms at the same time (pin number and
names) could also be confusing.

Maybe we could split not only on the arm/arm64 border, but also on
something like soc-level (rk3188, rk3288, rk3368). That way the amount
of changes per patch would go down making review easier :-) .

Just to make sure you saw it, I've also had to drop patch2 again (see
separate response from yesterday).
