"supplied nodes" sounds confusing (doesn't reflect direction), IMO. I'd
rather call it power-supply,supplied-to = <&some_battery>;

But... I'm recalling there was a similar discussion not that long ago, and
Arnd came up with the idea that supplied-to is not fully in spirit of DT,
and proposed his view of proper bindings. Please find the discussion here:

Thanks,
