From: Rafał Miłecki <rafal at milecki.pl>

Some NVMEM cells may provide more than 1 value. An example can be base
MAC address that is used for calculating multiple MACs (for few
different devices). For specifying value to read phandle needs to be
used with an argument.

V2: Drop redundant quotes (thanks Krzysztof)

Please note there is ongoing work by Michael who chose to modify
meta-schema in his work: https://github.com/devicetree-org/dt-schema/pull/89

This bit is required for moving forward with the
[PATCH v2 00/20] nvmem: core: introduce NVMEM layouts

As pointed out by Rob #nvmem-cell-cells should be added to the dt-schema
and not a Linux binding:
Re: [PATCH v2 15/20] dt-bindings: nvmem: add YAML schema for the sl28 vpd layout

sl28 is one example that needs #nvmem-cell-cells
u-boot,env is another one
