The patch is fine but if I were to be picky, we should update the
"Optional" entry to remove the "this property should be specified
unless the link is brought already up in BIOS" AFAIK in this HW
"BIOS" does not really play a role (and honestly the sentence above
is vague enough to make it useless if not harmful in a DT binding).
