Nit: s/property/compatible/

As mentioned elsewhere, "arm,gic-v2" would seem to fit the bill (and we
can have "arm,gic" or "arm,gic-v1" for v1).

It's been repeatedly brought up and agreed on, it's just that no-one's
implemented it. I agree that having an "arm,gic-v2" binding that people
can place in their compatible list is a sensible thing to do, and I'd be
happy to Ack patches implementing it.

Cheers,
Mark.
