For these 3 properties it likely is a good idea, but we would IMHO still have
to care for the differences in the register settings:

- A31 does not have a clock autogating register
- A23 and A83t does have one at offset 0x20
- A64, H3, H5 and R40 have it at offset 0x28

There are also the incompatibilities in the "DMA channel configuration
register" (burst length; burst width; burst length field offset).

We can either have 3 different compatible strings, or another property for the
register model.

For the aw,max_requests and aw,max_vchans, maybe a bitmask per direction is a
better option - it can encode the allowed DRQ numbers much better (e.g. for
H3, the highest source DRQ is 24). The DRQ field in the channel configuration
register is 5 bits, so the hightest port/DRQ number is 31.

For aw,max_channels my first thought is - why max? is it variable? is there a
min_channels? My suggestion would be (in order of preference): "aw,channels",
"aw,dma_channels", "aw,available_channels".

Kind regards,

Stefan
