Thanks! I was looking to see how the select syntax would work and this
shows one example nicely. I suppose another way would be to show how a
compatible string would be matched through select, even though it's
redundant.

Is there a way we can enforce node names through the schema too? For
example to enforce that a clock controller is called 'clock-controller'
or a spi master is called 'spi'.

Ok. That sounds cool. Then we could embed links to datasheets and SVGs
too.

Could we include another schema to indicate that this is an interrupt
controller? I'm sort of asking for multi-schema inheritance.
