Yeah, I have actually encoded the .num_users and .num_fifos in DT in the
previous version [1] with shared compatible strings, but dropped those
properties in favour of adding minimal custom properties to DT based on
some offline IRC comments. I have no objections either way, but there is
really nothing to be gained from minimizing compatible strings.

Tony,
Any comments on this?
