The node names are not part of an ABI, are they? I expect only
compatibles and properties to be stable. If user-space looks for
something by name, it's a user-space's mistake.  Not mentioning that you
also look for specific address... Imagine remapping of addresses with
ranges (for whatever reason) - AOSP also would be broken? Addresses are
definitely not an ABI.
