Personally, I feel like "qcom,local-bd-address-backwards" or
"qcom,local-bd-address-swapped" would be more documenting but I don't
feel super strongly about it. I guess "broken" makes it more obvious
that this is not just a normal variant that someone should use. If DT
binding folks are happy, I'm happy enough with this solution.
