About the following list some of them use skeleton64.dtsi instead of
skeleton.dtsi. All the armada-xp-*.dts uses it and also axm5516-amarillo.dts
(through axm55xx.dtsi), the ls1021a-*.dts, the mt8127-moose.dts, the
mt8135-evbp1.dts and the sun9i-a80-optimus.dts.

So maybe it would worth updating skeleton64.dtsi.

For the other ones it seems that actually they use skeleton.dtsi but not
through a dtsi file.

Thanks,

Gregory
