No, please see bridge/synopsys,dw-hdmi.yaml where it is derived from:

  reg-io-width:
    description:
      Width (in bytes) of the registers specified by the reg property.
    allOf:
      - $ref: /schemas/types.yaml#/definitions/uint32
      - enum: [1, 4]
    default: 1

Other bindings define it explicitly to be 4, e.g.

Documentation//devicetree/bindings/display/intel,keembay-msscam.yaml:  reg-io-width:
Documentation//devicetree/bindings/display/rockchip/rockchip,dw-hdmi.yaml:  reg-io-width:

Therefore I'd assume that a regmap is not properly set up
if we don't require the DTS to include it with const: 4.

Nice. It defines:

  clocks:
    minItems: 2
    maxItems: 5
    items:
      - description: The bus clock for either AHB and APB
      - description: The internal register configuration clock
    additionalItems: true

Or should we do

  clocks:
    maxItems: 2
    additionalItems: false

Ok, I see. it is not a simple "overwrite" rule.

Ok.

Ok. I'll try to make the best out of it for v5 series. Maybe
it is still not perfect by then, but close...
