Subject: [PATCH] RFC: input: Extend matrix-keypad device tree binding

Some matrix keypad drivers can support different numbers of rows and
columns. Add a generic binding for these.

Also define properties for the repeat rate, to allow a sane baseline to
be set up for the driver.

Implementation note:

In order to implement this binding in the kernel, we will need to modify
matrix_keypad_() to look up the number of rows and cols in
the keymap. Perhaps this could be done by passing 0 for these parameters?
Many of the parameters can already be set to NULL. Ick.

For the key repeat feature, we need to set this after the input device
is registered. So we would need to add a matrix_keypad_setup_input() or
similar to be called by the driver after input_register_device(). I am
less keen on that idea, and less again on the alternative of perhaps
matrix_keypad_register_device() which does input_register_device() and
then sets up the key repeat. Thoughts?
