What property of a file makes it an overlay ? Just the presence of /plugin/; ?

David, we are talking about the overlay base[1] file here. The fdtoverlay tool
fails to apply it to testcases.dts file (in the same directory) because none of
its nodes have the __overlay__ label and the dtc routine overlay_merge() [2]
skips them intentionally.

One way out is adding an (almost-empty) testcase-data-2 in testcases.dtb, that
will make it work.

It isn't just root node I think, but any node for which the __overlay__ label
isn't there.

So this can make it all work if everyone is fine with it:

And then we can do this to the Makefile over my changes.
