Either I'm missing something or...

Current code in linux-next has 3 properties to be possible

PROPERTY_ENTRY_U32("gpio-base", base);
PROPERTY_ENTRY_U16("nr-gpios", ngpio);
PROPERTY_ENTRY_BOOL("named-gpio-lines");

You adding here
PROPERTY_ENTRY_STRING("chip-label", chip_label);

Altogether after this patch is 4 which is maximum, but since array is passed by
a solely pointer, the terminator is a must.
