OK but that is a coding issue, not a DT bindings design issue.
Can't we think a bit outside the box?
What about something like this:

static bool is_dual (struct device_node *np)
struct property *prop = of_find_property(np, "xlnx,is-dual", NULL);
int ret;
u32 val;

if (!prop)
return false;

ret = of_property_read_u32(np, "xlnx,is-dual", &val);
if (ret < 0)
return true; /* node exists but has no cells */

return !!val;
