Stephen is right, the node-name should be generic (e.g. "bus") but the
label can (should) be more SoC-specific, so it should look like:

		hiubus: bus@...3c000 {

Note that we weren't strict about this for all the rest of the amlogic
SoCs (mostly because I didn't notice ) but we should start doing it
correctly now.  I'll also clean up the existing DTs.
