If this ID is an enumeration in the sysfw rather than an actual
hardware property it should not be in the device tree. If so,
the device driver should request the id from the sysfw based
on a name. That is, if no struct device or device phandle can
be used.

The problem with using enumeration in the dts is that it
requires maintaining the dts, driver(s) and possibly firmware
in sync. And that might change between SoCs variants when new
devices get added and removed.

Regards,

Tony
