Hi Pratyush,

Thanks for mentioning, I just noticed the same error after adding fsl,spi-cs-sck-delay property.
Since my example is not using the property, the error went unnoticed.

Taking example of nvidia qspi bindings i.e

I constructed other properties in similar fashion and later noticed that
example in nvidia bindings uses compatibes as "spi-nor" instead of "jedec,spi-nor"
and therefore passes "make dt_binding_check".

I agree with the solution to add properties in jedec,spi-nor.yaml and adding properties
particular to specific controllers for flashes in generic jedec,spi-nor.yaml may not be
a good solution though. Please let me know your views.

Other approach is to add these properties in same binding itself (if possible) so as
to limit the scope of these properties. Looking forward for more suggestions.
