From our discussion a months a ago (http://patches.linaro.org/19590/),
status = "disabled" means : "not present/wired-up on this variant of
the platform".

As Linux should cope with this status, why do we need to map these
devices in DOM0?

If we go further, with passthrough we may want remove device from the
device tree. If Linux has hardcoded device (but also in the device tree)
it will likely fail.
