There's an effort underway to convert the device tree bindings to yaml
so it'd be better for new bindings to start off that way. It should be
relatively straight forward, there are a couple of existing examples
in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/hwmon/ to follow.

Also there is an existing entry in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/trivial-devices.yaml for the adt7475
and friends that should be removed as part of the patch that adds the
new binding.

I don't know that there's any point in supporting bypass-attenuator-all
even though the adt7475 can support it configuring per VIN seems more
useful.

For our systems Linux is generally the ROM monitor, at least as far as
the hwmon devices are concerned. Overriding the HW default makes sense
for that case.

Do we want the ability to override the configuration from the ROM? It
should be easily doable by using an integer property instead of a
boolean.
