Sure, can do.

That indicates that the numbers should be stored as an array of u8, and
not as by default an array of (big-endian) 32-bit numbers. See

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/dtc/dtc.git/tree/Documentation/dts-format.txt#n46

This is already used in some bindings and existing .dts (e.g.
hwmon/aspeed-pwm-tacho.txt, but git grep shows many more).
