In general on MIPS we detect CPU properties at runtime from coprocessor
0 registers & similar sources of information, so there's not really a
need to specify anything about the CPU in devicetree. For example here
you say yourself that the value for this property can be read from
EBase.CPUNum - so why specify it in DT?

Thanks,
