Sounds good. AFAICT, the change below should be OK. Probably some
stylistic changes to make it blend in with the rest of the DT (e.g.
use lower case characters in the address parts of the node name).

I'd say that depends on what it is about. If it is about DT and the TPIU
Linux driver, I'd say, keep it on list and probably even include the
authors of that driver (the folks the get_maintainers script is
identifying for that driver).

If it's specific to Zynq, the Xilinx forums can be quite helpful as
there are a lot of people familiar with the device

But when in doubt, feel free to reach out to me directly.
