Well, that's related to a question that remained unanswered on v1:
whether we may need to turn this into a .dtsi to cope with variations.

The Parallella has an on-board ÂHDMI connector, and two bitstreams are
delivered - one for HDMI and one for headless usage. In my testing I am
using the original HDMI bitstream but serial console for lack of
upstream HDMI drivers. Do you think we need to provide
zynq-parallella-hdmi.dts and zynq-parallella-headless.dts? (It gets
worse if at some point we need to handle variations of the on-board
Epiphany chip plus the bitstreams - at least the Z7010 vs. Z7020 doesn't
affect DT AFAICT.)

Since, as noted in the cover letter, these FPGA patches are not yet
fully testable, I wouldn't mind deferring them, but wanted to get them
out for review early.
indicates there will be a new variation in gen2 without USB/HDMI. Would
it be valid to #include a .dts (rather than .dtsi) to override status
and keep number of Parallella files low?
