Why do you have both the above 2 paragraphs and an SPDX tag? I'd drop
the above (unless your lawyers told you otherwise).

I'd prefer this is added to of_platform_default_populate_init() and
handled like /reserved-memory.
But be aware that Bjorn is reworking this function.

This matches any node named firmware. I see a few instances like RPi
that are not /firmware (though RPi we can move probably).
of_find_node_by_path would be safer.

You perhaps missed a few instances. "amlogic,meson-gxbb-sm" looks like
it could be converted to a driver. "tlm,trusted-foundations" appears
to be needed early for bringing up cores, so it probably can't change.
They don't have to be converted as part of this series though.
