Yes, but it does not able to migrate to support both live dt and fdt,
because there is no same api in live dt, and here is what I do locally
for live dt:
 823                 phandle = ofnode_read_u32_default(node, "connect",
-1);        
 824                 if (phandle < 0)
{                                             
 825                         printf("Warn: can't find connect node's
handle\n");    
 826                        
continue;                                              
 827                
}                                                              
 828                 ep_node =
of_find_node_by_phandle(phandle);                    
 829                 if (!ofnode_valid(np_to_ofnode(ep_node)))
{                    
 830                         printf("Warn: can't find endpoint node from
phandle\n");
 831                        
continue;                                              
 832                
}                                                              
 833                 port_node =
of_get_parent(ep_node);                            
 834                 if (!ofnode_valid(np_to_ofnode(port_node)))
{                  
 835                         printf("Warn: can't find port node from
phandle\n");   
 836                        
continue;                                              
 837                
}                                                              
 838                 vop_node =
of_get_parent(port_node);                           
 839                 if (!ofnode_valid(np_to_ofnode(vop_node)))
{                   
 840                         printf("Warn: can't find crtc node from
phandle\n");   
 841                        
continue;                                              
 842                
}                                                              
 843                 ret =
uclass_get_device_by_ofnode(UCLASS_VIDEO_CRTC,           
 844                                                  
np_to_ofnode(vop_node),      
 845                                                   &crtc_dev);

In usb phy, we have similar requirement, but only need find "-1" depth
parent.
