Hm, yes, but there is such a nice info_exist_lock :-) in core functions,
which in practice serve the same purpose.

Yes, it is.

Yes, but #address-cells for the node is 1, so I would like to keep it 32 bits.

I am usually trying to follow these recommendations[1]. In practice driver
core cares only for EPROBE_DEFER, ENODEV and ENXIO, while of_property_read_u32()
can return ENODATA and EOVERFLOW, which did't not make sense for the core.

Thank you,
