How should the dma-channel-mask uint31-array should be documented and used?

Basically some EDMA have 32, some 64 channels. This is fine.
Let's say I want to mask out channel 0-4 and 24-27

This would look like in case of EDMA with 32 channels:
&edma {
/* channel 0-4 and 24-27 is not to be used */
dma-channel-mask = <0xf0fffff0>;
};

How this should look like in case when I have 64 channels?
&edma {
/* channel 0-4 and 24-27 is not to be used */
dma-channel-mask = <0xf0fffff0>, <0xffffffff>;
};

When I read the u32s then
chan_mask[0] is for channel 0-31 (LSB is channel 0)
chan_maks[1] is for channel 32-63 (LSB is channel 32)

Or:
&edma {
/* channel 0-4 and 24-27 is not to be used */
dma-channel-mask = <0xffffffff>, <0xf0fffff0>;
};

chan_maks[0] is for channel 32-63 (LSB is channel 32)
chan_mask[1] is for channel 0-31 (LSB is channel 0)

Do you have pointer on already established notion on how to document and
handle this?
