Firstly, anyone still using platform_devices to describe their
system needs to be stopped. We cannot go on supporting this when
our primary boot method is supposed to be device-tree. If we keep
doing this then we will not get any of the current issues fixed.

Will it impact the devicetree bindings on rcar?
