You could pass two strings and let the driver process them. Something
like:

snps,cache_type = <"data_wr" "write allocate">, <"desc_rd" "cacheable">...

And so on. The only thing missing is for the mbus_type to be known by
the driver. Is that something we can figure out on any of the HWPARAMS
registers or does it have to be told explicitly?

Another option would be to pass a string followed by one hex digit for
the bits:

snps,cache_type = <"data_wr" 0x8>, <"desc_rd" 0x2>...;

Then we don't need to describe mbus_type since the bits are what matters.

Rob, any comments?
