go ahead and propose a syntax, I'm very slow in the morning.

Ah, but would it. Look at the cs5536 startup code -- we don't
parameterize it yet. We need to.
We could do this: if there is a property in a node called "cpp", it is
a list of values in that node that should be emitted as #defines.
The names will be prefixed with the pathname of the dts, so
if we had
cpp = "com1enable";
we get (ugly)
or some such.
