Well, there are more submitters than reviewers and maintainers and we
have travel and vacation (aka lives).

DT is software's view of the hardware. Firmware provides interfaces to

firmware is not discoverable and needs to be described. Originally, DT
was the firmware's interface to the OS with OpenFirmware.
