Yes, you are correct. Aliases are not added for mmc in U-Boot too, but
due to the ordering in the device tree, mmc0 is always sdhci0 and mmc1
is always sdhci1 in U-Boot. I agree that, in kernel as the probe order
is not guaranteed, fixing the order would be better by adding aliases
explicitly.

Yes, I am suggesting a flip in the order and this order can be applied
across all the K3 SoC's
