yes indeed - we might have to live with more dts in such a case.

If I am not mistaken, the capes are stackable (within reason), and are
not exactly hotpluggable.. question pops up as to how do we handle
multiple cape descriptions on the same board without having the user
to create custom dts which includes each relevant cape dts he has on
his/her bone? I wonder(without proper research, just thinking aloud)
if u-boot can do some sort of merge of dtbs - assuming ofcourse eeprom
data is used to detect the capes plugged on board?
