/bindings/pstore/...

I wouldn't call it blkoops either. I believe ramoops is called that to
maintain compatibility keeping the same kernel module name that
preceeded pstore.

That's all kernel details not relevant to the binidng.

This seems unnecessary given a partition has a known size.

No. '/dev/...' is a Linux thing and doesn't belong in DT.

You should define a partition UUID and/or label and the kernel can find
the right partition to use.

Common properties shared with ramoops should be in a common doc.
