Subject[PATCH] dt-bindings: property-units: Sanitize unit naming
Date
Make the naming of units consistent with common practices:
- Do not capitalize the first character of units ("Celsius" is
special, as it is not the unit name, but a reference to its
proposer),
- Do not use plural for units,
- Do not abbreviate "ampere",
- Concatenate prefixes and units (no spaces or hyphens),
- Separate units by spaces not hyphens,
- "milli" applies to "degree", not to "Celsius".
