V3 (still in the process of finishing up and testing, will have this change.

This is how the hw register is defined, its the literal number of mA.
This is cleaned up in the upcoming revision.

This isn't sw. This is defined in the HW documentation as to what
happens if an invalid value is used.

This is a field which can be set in the device's registers. I think it
is being used in our downstream kernel. I maintained support for these 3
fields for the sake of completely defining the dt binding up front.
