SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] Input: rotary-encoder-counter: add DT bindings
Hi Kamel,

The prefix for device tree bindings is usually dt-bindings:
$framework: $title

So a title like "dt-bindings: input: Add a counter-based rotary
encoder binding" would be better.

Bindings are usually used by other OS's, so you should consider
putting it under a more permissive license, usually that would be GPL2
and the BSD-2-Clause

You shouldn't really describe the action here, but more what the
binding is about. The registration will not depend on the presence of
the node following that binding, but rather on whether or not the OS
that uses it has support for it.

This should have a type

That range (even though it's a bit odd) should be expressed through an
enum so that you can check that the values are actually within that
range.

Muli-line strings should have either quotes around them, or a | or >

a single string.

This should also have a type

This should be expressed through a if / then clause, or a dependencies one

This should be expressed through a default property.

Same story than steps for the dependency. Also, what is is the
behaviour when this property isn't set?

It should have a type too, and a default property

A unit-address (the part after @) only makes sense for a node if
there's a matching reg property in the node. This will trigger a DTC
warning, so you should remove the @0
