So this is a device tree binding.

The recent direction of the Device Tree bindings are not in the RST
direction but in the direction of using another formal structure: YAML
schemas.

See e.g. Documentation/devicetree/bindings/example-schema.yaml

The YAML schema makes it possible to verify device trees and examples
inside the bindings to the specification using a context-free grammar.

If we can join the RST and YAML ambitions is a good question. RST
has nice typesetting properties, YAML has nice grammatic properties.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
