Sounds fine to me. The only thing I'm still wondering about is whether
to have both "opencores,or1k-pic-*" variants, or just ""opencores,or1k-pic"
and an (optional) property for edge/level selection.

Is edge support planned to stay in future versions of the specifications?
If not, go with the optional property to select edge.
If yes, have two variants.

Is this planned to be fixed for OR1200?
If yes, how? If this will be done by switching to the version that follows the
or1k spec, the compatible value in DT can just be changed to one of the
"opencores,or1k-pic-*" variants.

Just my 2 c...
