Reverse christmas tree would look a bit nicer here.

of_property_read_u8() would probably be good here since this can't be 
bigger than 5 anyway.

If I use a number greater than and included 128; this will cause a roll 
over, should this be range checked? Similarly, using 
of_property_read_u8() might be a better fit?

Other than those, LGTM
