I'd definitely like to see those defines gone.
Arguably an unrelated change as I guess they are left from a previous refactor
of this code.

Why prop to type renaming?  It's getting passed into calls where the parameter
is propname so I'd understand renaming to that, but type just seems a bit random
to me.  I do wonder if we are better off having some long lines and getting rid
of the property naming local variables completely by just duplicating
the device_property_read_u32() call and passing them in directly.

Moving declarations more locally is a nice to have but I'll leave that up to Justin.

Anyhow, both solutions look much better than the original so I'm fine either way
(subject to responses to Stephen's review)
