Since it's a vendor specific property, it should include vendor prefix.

Also CCF is a Linux-specific implementation detail, which DT bindings
should not be involved into. If you really need to implement this using
this way, then at least property description should say something like

xlnx,fclk-enable : Bit mask of bits of fclk enable register that must
be statically enabled at boot-up time.

However, I wonder why you can't simply define an FPGA block using a single
node, which would be a consumer to all the fclk clocks you need to enable
and then make a driver for it that would simply enable all clocks
specified in clocks property.

Best regards,
