Thinking about this further... isn't this a problem for the dts since it 
is pre static tree?  The simple way to handle this is to move the 
cs5536_setup_power_button call from 5536\stage1.c to the mainboard 

Yes, the dts and kconfig are great for setting things up but sometimes 
platform code is easier.
