No, like I say please see previous discussion ad nauseum about this.

Or just write a machine driver.  simple-card is one such machine driver
but it's not going to be suitable for non-trivial systems.  Possibly
your system is simple enough, possibly it isn't - I don't know anything
about it really.  Regardless of how you do this it shouldn't have
individual devices needing to open code configuration for links, it's
something essentially every device is going to need to do and forcing
the DT to configure the same thing twice for a link isn't a good idea
either.
