If you have two interrupt output lines, you should have two entries in
interrupts.

You can use interrupt-names to determine which line(s) are wired up.

I don't believe that you need this property.

s/_/-/ in property names please. 

What happens if this isn't set? Is it active-low, or edge-triggered?

It feels like we should be able to query when we need to set this from
the IRQ(s).

These all sounds like they would be better as runtime options. I don't
see why these should necessarily be in the DT.

Likewise.

It would be nice to have a better qualified name than "range".

These both sound like they would be better as runtime options.

I'm unsure about these; it really depends on what the calibration is
for.
