We don't have to parse the DT manually to retrieve the bus frequency
and we don't have to maintain an own default for the bus frequency.
Let the i2c core do this for us.

Hi Heiner,

I'm sorry, but you should *really* update the dt-bindings.

The dt bindings are now strictly related to how the driver is implemented, or which
attributes are used, but how the device tree node should conform to.

In this particular case, in the recent addition of "standard" i2c attributes for
speed and timings, you should refer to this "i2c.txt" file to specify how the node
should conform.

And finally, this patch would be correct since the node will be supposed to conform
to the correct bindings.

I checked the DT documentation of all i2c drivers. Just two include something similar
to what you request:

i2c-rcar.txt
no remark for property clock-frequency
i2c-scl-falling-time-ns: see i2c.txt

nvidia,tegra186-bpmp-i2c.txt
See ../i2c/i2c.txt for details of the core I2C binding.

So you request a comment like the one in the tegra driver documentation?

The supported properties as such don't change in the meson driver, only
clock-freqeuncy is supported as optional parameter.
The timing properties are parsed by the core call but they are not used by the
driver, so I don't think we are allowed to mention them in the documentation.
Else a reader of the documentation may expect that setting such a timing
parameter actually changes the behavior of the driver.

Ignore the fact the driver does not parse them, they are marked as optional
in the bindings, so the "DT author" will know they won't be necessarily parsed
or used.
Consider the bindings to be a contract between the DTS and the driver, the DTS
*must* respect the bindings with the mandatory properties and nodes, and can add
optional properties without insurance they will be used.
On the other side, the driver that respects the bindings knows that the mandatory
properties and nodes *must* be present (and *should* fail if not present), and knows
some optional properties and nodes can be present to specify some supplementary parameters,
but in this case fallbacks *must* be available.
