Hi Simon,

why did you send this to the Tegra ML?

At my request, so that the DT changes could be reviewed by the kernel DT reviewers and added to the copy of the DT files in the kernel source tree if approved.

My assertion is that DT content should be independent of SW stack. Or put another way, all SW stacks should use the same DT content. As such, if these properties are needed by U-Boot, and contained in the copy of the DT files in the U-Boot source tree, they should also be present in the copy of the DT files in the kernel source tree, so the two do not become out of sync.

This updates the device tree from the kernel version to something suitable
for U-Boot:

- Add stdout-path alias for console
- Mark the /soc node to be available pre-relocation so that the early
serial console works (we need the 'ranges' property to be available)

Why do you need this and why should upstream carry your favourite
bootloaders configuration? This is in no way hardware description.
