Patch 3/4 moves this to net/lora/, which I think is more appropriate.

We should only list both if we expect differences between the two
models. Otherwise SX1308 can reuse the SX1301 compatible. If we want to
mark it up just in case then rearranging the above to be a sequence of
"semtech,sx1308", "semtech,sx1301" would be an alternative.

Is this mandatory now or not with maxItems?

This needs to be optional, which I think the maxItems syntax says unlike
the commit message?
On an mPCIe card you won't have such a GPIO, for instance. We do a Soft
Reset, so it's not functionally mandatory.

Do we really need to describe this here? It should be covered in the
common SPI bindings, and only applies to SPI bus, not USB picoGW.

I'm pretty sure that Rob would like to have a compatible here, even if
unneeded in our Linux driver?

BTW if someone has better naming suggestions than "radio-spi"... I just
wanted to avoid having it in the main node directly, in case we need
other sub-nodes, too.

Must be optional.

Should be optional. (Driver needs it today, but that's another problem.)

Thanks for looking into this,
