Subject[PATCH 1/2] dt-bindings: net: dsa: marvell: Add single-chip-address property
Some Marvell DSA devices can be accessed in a single chip addressing
mode. This is currently configured by setting the address of the switch
to 0. However switches in this configuration do not respond to address
0, only responding to higher addresses (fixed addressed based on the
switch model) for the individual ports/etc. This is a feature to allow
for other phys to exist on the same mdio bus.

This change defines a 'single-chip-address' property in order to
explicitly define that the chip is accessed in this mode. This allows
for a switch to have an address defined other than 0, so that address
0 can be used for another mdio device.
