Ok. I'll send a patch. To what email and mailing lists shall I send it

Right, but I'd prefer having the AXI/MTL-config nodes directly found
because they are supposed to be defined as sub-nodes anyway. Having
the snps-prefixed AXI/MTL-config properties with phandle reference are
going to be marked as deprecated. By doing so we'll discourage
defining the DW MAC-related configs scattered around the new dts-es.

Thanks for suggesting an alternative. I didn't figure out such option
myself. Though in this case since we need to use the required property
anyway, I'd prefer to have it used in the 'not' sub-schema too. At
least for uniformity and to simplify the conditional statement
readability, even if it causes a bit of the concise loss.

Yeah, I had the same thought in mind when first saw that
boolean-properties hell. There are few more properties in this
bindings file which should have been also defined as taking values
instead of being booleans...

Oh, thanks. I can't believe I've missed that option. Though fixing the
dt-schema tool would be better than using the combining schema
keywords as a workaround.

First of all the driver permits omitting all of them in the
corresponding nodes and implicitly using one of the properties by
default (the same thing is for the MTL Tx-queues). If we made some of
them being required we would have broken the driver dts-contract,
which is not good. Secondly I'd have to fix the
arch/arm/boot/dts/artpec6.dtsi dts file too, which would have been an
additional patch in the series, additional work, additional review
from the platform maintainer, additional merge path, etc. So to speak
that would cause more troubles, than just using the "not:" statement
here.)
