I would like to register a complaint about this commit.

When this was discussed I objected that this entire pile of crap does
not belong in the kernel.

I still think this is a festering junkpile that does not belong in
the kernel, and that his should be backed out, until a proper
architectural solution has been found.

Adding a new bogus type of device tree just because on cannot be
bothered to do things right, is the road that leads to things like
SYSV IPC and away from a sustainable architecture for an operating
system which is here for the long term.

Please back this out.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
