probably not, we need to really understand what information we need so
it can be described properly. The last thing we want is unnecessary DT
properties.

It seems to me that we can extrapolate INCRBrstEna based on which burst
modes are enabled. If only 0 is passed, then that bit should be 1, if 0
and any other size is passed, then that bit should be 0, no?
