As far as I'm concerned, definitely - at the end of the day these values
are really here just to be written into a register, and not because we
plan to do fancy things with the PMU. So to me it is really not an issue
if the DT bindings reflect that fact (not to mention doing otherwise
would be uselessly cumbersome).
