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.
