I agree with Dr. H. Nikolaus on this regard. A DeviceTree should be a
description of the hardware and if two hardware platforms differs,
then we need two different DTS.

Lately I'm seeing some attempts to abuse u-boot's fdt command, u-boot
should only modify the strictly necessary like the /chosen branch.
Allowing u-boot to mangle the FDT before passing to the kernel just to
avoid some DT duplication doesn't sound like a good idea IMHO.
