Fwiw I initially thought the same about ppc code. I guess these are  
symptoms of copy and paste between unrelated parts of code. The reg  
property of the /memory node on ppc is similarly bogus, still need to  
clean up my patch for review.

In some places the IEEE 1275 spec (or was it the platform binding?)  
has some nice examples of how they would typically be set up.
