first of all: thanks for reviewing this (and the rest of the series)!

none of the upstream DTBs uses amlogic,rx-delay-ns - and I am also not
aware of anything being in use "downstream".
I will add a sentence to the commit description when I re-send this
without RFC, something along those lines: "No upstream DTB uses the
old amlogic,rx-delay-ns (yet). Only include minimalistic logic to fall
back to the old property, without any special validation (for example:
old and new property are given at the same time)"

What do you think?
