The implementation here can't be changed without a change to the 
binding documentation:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/mmc/mmc-controller.yaml?h=v5.15-rc7#n345

This fundamentally breaks any in-tree users. We can't do this.

In terms of the binding, if negative phase values are something we must 
do, we can just extend the value range to include [-359, -1] right? 
That avoids changing the type of the value positions in the manner this 
patch does.
