this property is added in:
3a6f9dce6116 ASoC: rk3399_gru_sound: fix recording pop at first attempt

to fix pop noise by performing a delay after set dmic clk.

the binding said "dmic-wakeup-delay-ms", but actually driver parses 

+       /* Set DMIC delay */
+       ret = device_property_read_u32(&pdev->dev, "dmic-delay",
+                                       &rt5514_dmic_delay);

+       msleep(rt5514_dmic_delay); <-- perform a delay after set dmic clk
         return 0;

then realtek guys fixed this issue in the rt5514 codec driver:
a5461fd6c8f7 ASoC: rt5514: Add the DMIC initial delay to wait it ready.

+       device_property_read_u32(dev, "realtek,dmic-init-delay-ms",
+               &rt5514->pdata.dmic_init_delay);

delay after set dmic clk

so we don't need to deal with it in every boards' drivers which using 
rt5514 codec, and we are using this new property now:
ag dmic arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/rk3399-gru.dtsi
620:            realtek,dmic-init-delay = <20>;   <---- oops, seems 
missing "-ms" at the end, guess due to realtek patch ends up differently 
on upstream. will send a patch to fix it later.

anyway, i think it's ok to remove that out-dated property in our driver :)
