I think it's more typical to include the binding document with the
driver patch, so that one patch both defines and implements the binding.
A separate patch then instantiates the binding (i.e. adds entries to *.dts).

Patches that create new DT bindings should be posted to
devicetree-discuss at lists.ozlabs.org, although this one is so simple that
I doubt it will generate any discussion.

Patches that affect ARM files should be posted to
linux-arm-kernel at lists.infradead.org. I typically post there instead of
the main linux-kernel@ mailing list.

I assume you're going to repost this anyway once you've addressed the
authorship issue, so you'll have an opportunity to correct all this.

The actual content of this patch seems fine.
