As far as I can see, all the device_property_* functions are grounded on their
of_property_*, acpi_property_* etc counterparts and functions reading specific
elements (the _index variants) are currently not available at all.

#define OF_DEV_PROP_READ_ARRAY(node, propname, type, val, nval)				\
	(val) ? of_property_read_##type##_array((node), (propname), (val), (nval))	\
	      : of_property_count_elems_of_size((node), (propname), sizeof(type))

So even if you're using the device_property_* functions you'd still need
a match in the underlying functions or am I missing something?
