@ in this case seperates the type of resources (pci) from the instance
of it (device, function).

So @ is a seperator. Using _ will add ambiguity as it is NOT a
seperator. same problem for -.

Stepan, will the OFW guys kill us if we allow ':' as well as @.

I still am not sure that allowing @ AND : is really that good an idea
-- it means some dts files will not look like others; and if we put
the dts binary blob in the lar, tools that translate the blob to
source (such as the dtc itself) will print @, not :.

I'm happy to allow ':' but be aware it's not problem-free.
