I'm happy to reach out to folks to try to get that. Though I'm
wondering if it would be better to put it behind a dts quirk flag, as
originally proposed?
   https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20201021181803.79650-1-john.stultz@linaro.org/

That way folks can enable it for devices as they need?

Again, I'm not trying to force this in as-is, just mostly sending it
out again for discussion to understand what other approach might work.

thanks
