Well, the binding looks very similar with the same
ethernet-ports/port@X structure. So maybe we need a switch schema that
covers both and then a DSA schema.

Yes, by default, we match on compatible or node name if no compatible.
The simple solution here is adding 'select: false' and then dsa.yaml
will only be applied when explicitly referenced by the h/w specific
bindings.

There's also mscc-ocelot which is not yet a schema.
