From other sources I also think these revisions are same besides wifi.

So the only thing warranting separate dtbs might be the OOB IRQ thing.
In the Tolino sources there is the function dhd_customer_oob_irq_map in
the bcmdhd driver, and it gets its number from this:
drivers/net/wireless/bcmdhd/Makefile:	-DCUSTOMER_HW2 -DCUSTOM_OOB_GPIO_NUM=127 -DOOB_INTR_ONLY -DHW_OOB

The brcmfmac driver is upstream and has devicetree support, but the
rtl8189fs is not. For the Clara I am using this one:
https://github.com/jwrdegoede/rtl8189ES_linux.git (branch 8189fs)
It has no devicetree support, so things cannot be defined anyway.

On one hand the hardware should be described in the devicetree as good
as possible but on the other hand the OOB IRQ is not mandatory.
