GPIO property names ought to end in "-gpios", i.e. "ti,ac-detect-gpios".

That's a little odd. Why not just put the number of mA directly into the
property unshifted?

"terminates charging" is a driver action, not a description of HW. It's
fine to say that what min/max value should be specified in the property
for it to be valid, but not what action SW should take in response to that.

Those same two comments apply to other properties too.

What if this value is inconsistent with the charger's power consumption
derived from the other two properties? Is it really necessary to include
this property in the DT and hence create the potential for mismatch?
