Ah yes, you are correct sir.

Are the attributes that are currently set by fdtput'ing on the dtb the
ones you want to get from the bootloader?  Or are there others?

I guess another way to say it is I'm interested in getting as much of

can happen fast in on the ARM side I think).  We can make changes as
the proprietary bits catch up.
