The original binding described qcom,num-strings to mean "the first N
strings", requiring qcom,enabled-strings now would break backwards
compatibility with this binding.

In the case that qcom,enabled-strings is specified we can easily derive
num-strings from the listed entires. So I would suggest that you look
for enabled-strings and if not found fall back to checking for
num-strings.
