You could check that in the driver. If you can check it in the driver,
you can also decide to ignore it if it were offset by 0x04 (possibly
printing a warning.) That opens up the ability to fix the older Tegra
DT files going forward while still remaining compatible with existing
DT files, and avoiding the need for a complex note about this.
