It's not u-boot that is tripping but a later loaded kernel. As I've written
op-tee adds its nodes to the dt loaded by the SPL from a FIT image.

Which may not necessarily be the same dt that gets used by the later
kernel. PXE-boot for example may very well just load a different dt
from emmc / network than the one stored in the firmware image.

So the reserved memory sections will need to move over to that dt
as well if we're starting a kernel with a different dt, similar to how
u-boot will add the core memory there as well.
