It is really a bit hard to find as it is pretty old.  But it was
really used up until this commit below in 2008.  So probably it will
be better to keep it just for backward compatibility?

    [POWERPC] QE: get rid of most device_types and model

    Now we're searching for "fsl,qe", "fsl,qe-muram", "fsl,qe-muram-data"
    and "fsl,qe-ic".

    Unfortunately it's still impossible to remove device_type = "qe"
    from the existing device trees because older u-boots are looking for it.
