The patches look fine, but the description is wrong as you are not
using 'phandles' here, you are using 'labels'.

A phandle is a reference to another device node inside of a property,
and while that is normally done using labels like

interrupt-parent = <&gic>;

you can just as well use the full path in a phandle.
