The compatible value should start with the vendor name, followed by a
comma, and then the device identifier. This should thus be "xlnx,dsi".
However, I think calling it just "dsi" isn't specific enough, as it
could also be a DSI RX. "xlnx,dsi-tx" would be a better value. As the IP
core is versioned, I would make it "xlnx,dsi-tx-v2.0" (assuming that's
the version you want to support). If you want to support v1.0 as well,
you can add "xlnx,dsi-tx-v1.0" as an option.

Does this cover both the DSI TX registers and the D-PHY registers, or
only the DSI TX registers ? It should be specified.

The protocol configuration register has an Active Lanes field that
reports the number of lanes. Could we read the information from the
register, and drop this property ?

The example below (and the driver) use "xlnx,dsi-data-type".

Same comment as above, should this be read from the Pixel Format field
instead of being specified in DT ?

I think you should put the "port" node in a "ports" node, as there's
also a panel subnode. Otherwise both the port and panel will compete for
#address-cells and #size-cells. It happens that both need those
properties to be 1 and 0 respectively, but isolating the two would be
cleaner.

There should also be a port for the AXI4-Stream interface. The common
practice is to number the input port@0 and the output port@1.

This should be panel, not simple_panel.

You can drop the last two sentences, DT bindings shouldn't mention
driver-specific implementations.

This should be dropped too, it's out of scope.

I think this should be queried at runtime from the panel (if I'm not
mistaken it's reported through the mode_flags field of struct
mipi_dsi_device), and not specified in DT.

DT example nodes, when using YAML, are put in a bus node that has
#address-cells and #size-cells both set to 1, so this needs to be

               reg = <0x80000000 0x10000>;

You can drop unused labels.

This line doesn't appear to be needed.
