I understand your concern here and I know DT bindings should only
describe the HW but note that this is already done in
mtl-rx-config and mtl-tx-config.

These parameters may also need to change in runtime depending on
the scheduled traffic. Unfortunately, net subsystem does not yet
support TSN so this will have to wait and for now we will use
fixed parameters.

Anyway, what do you suggest here instead? Platform data?

Best regards,
Jose Miguel Abreu
