I can't say for all possible DW MAC IP-cores (I've got manuals for
GMAC and xGMAC only), but at least DW GMAC can't have more than four
GPIs and four GPOs, while XGMACs can be synthesized with up to 16
each. That's why I've set the upper boundary here as 32. But the
driver uses the ngpios property do determine the total number GPIOs
the core has been synthesized. Th number of GPIs and GPOs will be
auto-detected then (by writing-reading to-from the GPI type field of
the GPIO control register).

Yeap, they are independent. What do you suggest then? Define some
vendor-specific properties like snps,ngpis and snps,ngpos? If so then
they seem more generic than vendor-specific, because the separated
GPI and GPO space isn't an unique feature of the DW MAC GPIOs. Do we
need to create a generic version of such properties then? (That much
more changes then introduced here. We'd need to fix the dt-schema tool
too then.)
