That doesn't mean it must not be used on other architectures ;-)
Arm64 was just the first one to use it...

It was my understanding both properties under /chosen are the
recommended methods for new platforms... Let's see what Rob has
to say...

Anyway, I sent a patch series to switch to generic "linux,elfcorehdr"
handling

Thanks!
