Thanks for the review.  Since our firmware was patching the dtb, based
on the node-name, we thought by changing node-name, we can avoid the
patching and maintain backward compatibility.

Now we know that network devices should have 'ethernet@...', we will
handle the backward compatibility in a different way and will post the
patch v2 shortly.
