For different SoC variants I would expect this to be implied by a new
compatible string. A hypothetical Tegra235 SoC that is largely the same
as Tegra234 but required slight changes in these values would also get a
different set of compatible strings. So the fabrics in that case would
be called:

- nvidia,tegra235-aon-fabric
- nvidia,tegra235-bpmp-fabric
- nvidia,tegra235-cbb-fabric
...

and then that new value can be derived from that new compatible string.
In general we only want to provide data in device tree if it can't be
implied from the compatible string. Most of the time that's only for
things that are somehow dependent on the board design. Data that is
fixed for a given SoC can be derived from the compatible string.
