I will reorder it alphabetically in v2.

I will remove 'ti,use-crc;' property from the DT. This will be only in
the driver.
Do you also consider that a property such as 'ti,is-secondary-pmic;'
would not be acceptable either ? From driver point of view, this
primary/secondary role on SPMI bus is a 'built-in' property of the
PMIC (CRC must be enabled only via primary PMIC but using the
primary PMIC does not imply that CRC is necessarily used).

OK. Regarding buck34, it might be unnecessary and could finally be
removed in v2. If we keep it, my understanding of your suggestion is:
allOf:
  - if:
       required:
        - buck12
    then:
      properties:
        buck123: false
        buck1234: false
  - if:
      required:
        - buck123
    then:
      properties:
        buck34: false
  - if:
      required:
        - buck1234
     then:
        properties:
          buck34: false
