Thinking some more this generic binding definition is a bit restrictive,
particularly the "Note that this property is mutually-exclusive with "cts-gpios"
and "rts-gpios"" part.

As with this series we will have dynamic on-the-fly changing from hw flow
control to gpio control for other configs which the HW IP doesn't support.

IMO the uart-has-rtscts definition should be updated to reflect that they can
be used together in certain circumstances.

regards,

Peter.
