Well, is not fairly obvious to me. One can also say the opposite, why the
kernel is documenting a DT binding that is not (currently) implemented?

That's why what makes the most sense for me is what the old convention did,
add the DT binding docs in the same patch that implements the binding.

Anyways, thanks for letting me know what is the convention today.
