OF graph is not directional. All links must be bi-directional and in
fact dtc checks that now. The parent node should know the numbering
and direction of each port.

I really don't like slave-mode nor coresight,hwid.

I would prefer to see getting rid of both and splitting ports into
"in-ports" and "out-ports" nodes instead of a single "ports" node.
Then you don't need any of these properties and reg can be used as the
hwid.
