When looking at the git log, I'm not that convinced it should be
separate patches.

For example, I found a4f741e3e157c3a5c8aea5f2ea62b692fbf17338 that is
doing the exact same thing as this patch.

There is plenty of patches that mixes the code change and dt bindings
updates.
Could it not be useful to overview both the implementation and
dt-mapping change in one view?

If you or anyone else still think it should be separated, please let me know and I will
come up with a v3.
