arch/arm64/boot/dts/ti/k3-am65.dtsi has no ordering. u-boot is supposed
to copy from kernel the dtsi files as is. I think having mmc aliases in
kernel is a good thing as we do regard kernel as the canonical dts
source.

If you are suggesting we flip things so that mmc0 is sdhci0 and mmc1 is
sdhci1 -  that might be a valid suggestion - Jan, do you see a problem
in having consistency here (flip the aliases)?
