Judging by some of the questions I see popping up over and over again,
I suspect that many people resisting OF device trees lack much of an
understanding of what they provide and can do.

Questions like "How do we determine attribute X of a given device" has
an obvious answer if you understand device node properties and that
you can encode arbitrary things into them to provide arbitrary bits of
information on a per-device-instance basis.
