As a result...

I don't understand this part. It looks to me like you are breaking
compatibility. The driver failing to probe with an old DT is okay?

OS's like OpenSUSE use new DTs with older kernel versions, so you should
consider how to not break them as well. I guess if all this is optional
or has been unused, then there shouldn't be a problem.
