Currently, the gpio.yaml schema is applied to all nodes. That has the
advantage that GPIO related properties are always checked whether we
have a device specific schema or not. It has the disadvantage that you
can't do some constraints like required properties or what's in child
We could (and probably should) change it to be referenced by specific
gpio controller schemas like we do for i2c, spi, etc. Then you can
define required properties there and do something like:

I was hoping someone would add the descriptions. :)
