Why are we talking about sysfs in the devicetree binding? This patch
doesn't seem right to me.

Correct; this is the wrong document. The attribute also will need
to be better explained. "At alternate side" does not explain (at
least not at all clearly enough) that the attribute only exists
if the system has booted from the alternate flash / block.

Also if we're not supporting the aspeed,alt-boot property we should
probably document it as deprecated rather than making it disappear,
unless you're going to fix the systems that are using it.

Sorry, you lost me here. Where is it made to disappear ?
