I was talking about the device tree property. Even if the driver 
to use just 16bit, the DT property could be 32bit IMHO.

At the moment, the schema says its 32bit (if I'm not mistaken, because
it doesn't have a type), but the driver will parse the property as
16bit and your device tree also has this /bits/ thingy. So regardless
if the driver is using 16bit or 32bit for the value, there seems to be
a discrepancy between the schema and the devicetree (and driver).

All other properties are just the regular 32bit values, thus I was
suggesting to change the DT property to 32bit.
