"SPI framework" is not relevant to bindings.

Drop "Another hand"

Need to say this is an array of values up to ? channels.

I wonder if this should be a slave property. Is there a relationship
between the SPI address (i.e. chip select) and the "analog chip
address"? It sounds like the h/w channels are a protocol specific to a
particular PMIC/MFD that this controller supports.
