jfyi, some of the current bindings are the way they are to simplify
compatibility w/ downstream kernels which I unfortunately still have
to deal with.. ofc, the sooner I don't have to deal w/ downstream
kernels, the easier it gets to clean up ;-)

ofc, since the number of devices that can run upstream kernel but
don't have upstream dts files is approximately zero, this would be a
case were it would be useful to be able to mark certain bindings as
non-abi and refactor them later.
