The whole DT overlay discussion rang a bell somewhere in my brain and
now I had time to look it up. I read about a DT overlay hack here:
Please read the README for details.
Can the above hack be of some use to the EOMA project until "patches to
fully support overlays, including loading them on the fly into a running
system" are mainlined?
I can not answer the question myself because I am not into DT overlays.

It seems we are not the only one with DT overlay problems:
