I don't know if it is possible to get dts from dtb even if you manage
to extract devicetree blob from your system.

Labbe, Do you know anyway to get dts from dtb? Is this step really
required to remove 0x100 value for this patch given that the value was
present here for years? If extracting dtb and converting dtb to dts is
easy and not time consuming, I am in favour of finding a way to remove
hard coded value.
