Ah, that is a good observation!

Yes, the DT should be designed properly.

Yes, but I wonder how likely it is to happen at all.

In an case there is an indicative message (either /0 or an explaining one) in
the boot log which goes away as soon as it has been fixed.

This is already better than in many other cases where things simply fail without
any message...

So I would weight the likelihood of happening vs. the additional code
to check every time.

If maintainers request, I can easily add it. But personally I do not see
it as absolutely necessary.

BR and many thanks,
