Understood, rules are golden! :)

UIO in general uses standard bindings (like "compatible", "reg",
"interrupt"), but the documentation part is completely missing. What I
was able to find in Kernel tree is a HOW-TO from Hans-Juergen Koch
dated 2006 and kobject reference on Embedding kobjects with UIO as an
example. I've created a new binding document under
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/uio/ and would submit it together
with updated patch in series.

If anyone happen to know which place I missed in the Kernel to look at
for uio dt-binding Documentation part - please point me out.

Would be done!

I am planning to have all above corrected and re-submit the patch as
series with Documentation part included.
