BTW, according to:


... there are actually 2 different HW configurations we care about for
the pre-plus Pis:

B rev 1
A, or B rev 2

I guess we should have separate device trees for those, since there are
some differences in the GPIO and I2C channel usage. That'd leave us with:

bcm2835-rpi-b.dts (Pin3=GPIO0, Pin5=GPIO1, Pin13=GPIO21, I2C-0)
bcm2835-rpi-b-rev2.dts (Pin3=GPIO1, Pin5=GPIO2, Pin13=GPIO27, 12C-1)
bcm2835-rpi-b-plus.dts (TBD pending schematic or equivalent info)
... and probably another for the compute board.

We can ignore RAM size differences, since these are automatically filled
into the /memory node in DT. I'm not sure if A-vs-B-rev-1 is
interesting. Perhaps we should have separate DTs just in case, since we
may need to represent the LAN_RUN GPIO in DT at some point, and that
only applies to the B.

Presumably, the boot loader would automatically query the VC firmware
for the board revision data, and dynamically load the appropriate DT

Any thoughts or objections?
