We usually do not describe 'status', but if your device node used "pinctrl-$n", "pinctrl-names" ... common properties, yes, you should describe them to let users know what is the purpose of these properties.

Why can a Spreadtrum PWM not work when the > clock parents are unspecified? On some Spreadtrum platforms, the default source clock of PWM may not be enabled, so we should force users to select one available source clock for PWM output clock. -- Baolin Wang Best Regards
