Sorry, I don't buy lopper can handle it. That leaves too much hand waving IMO.

You defining this as a boolean and then using a schema that applies to
arrays (maxItems).

So I can make the driver expect it then translate if needed if this what you prefer.

What's Xilinx platform manager? The drivers are irrelevant for the binding.

For what's clearly the same functionality, I want the binding the
same. TI can have more modes if that's what they need.

No.

Not sure really.

Sounds like you should be using the power-domain binding.

Terrible. We have a schema to define constraints.

items:
- const: rx
- const: tx

Well, it should probably have some sort of compatible so we know what
the thing is...

If we have a DT for the R5 side or view of the system, we'd need to
define TCMs, right? For the A cores, it shouldn't look any different
other than perhaps the address. So, you first need a TCM binding.
Maybe that ends up being just mmio-sram binding, maybe not. Probably
not if there's power controls.
