Not conforming to bindings is also a bug. Missing properties or wrong
properties, even if hardware is working, is still a bug. If such bug is
not visible now in Linux, might be visible later in the future or
visible in different OS (DTS are used by other systems and pieces of
software like bootloaders). Limiting this only to Linux and to current
version (hardware still works) is OK for Linux drivers, but not for DTS.

Therefore Fixes tag in general is applicable. Of course maybe to this
one not really, maybe this is too trivial, or whatever, so I do not
insist. But I insist on the principle - reasonable dtbs_check warnings
are like compiler warnings - bugs which have to be fixed.
