This label is used by rfkill (converted to pdata->name in probe
function) and used for displaying.
Maybe label isn't correct name for that purpose.

I did platform data -> DT mapping 1 : 1. Maybe we don't need to export
those to separate
include file and only use raw number instead.

rfkill-regulator in probe check for vrfkill regulator so I've added it
to description as without that rfkill-regulator doesn't make sense.

We can do something like:
gps-device {
    compatible = "my-desired-gps";
    <other device properties>
    rfkill = <&gps-rfkill>;
};

rfkill-regulator is linked with regulator so if you have another
device it is probably controlled
with another regulator.

Some time ago was posted rfkill-gpio DT binding conversion and was
using the nearly the same bindings as
we propose and there was no issue with that.
