Bindings describe h/w, not drivers or Linux subsystems.

This does not match the example. Need to clarify valid combinations and 
ordering.

ditto.

I'm wondering if this would be better described as just 1 node for the 
AVS cpu? Are there any other functions or resources tied to the cpu 
beyond your current usage?
