Sure. Dodgy first atttempt at checkpatch below.

It would also be nice to check matching unit-address and reg, but doing
that correctly requires knowing #address-cells, which sounds a little
painful.

I'm not sure where I picked up the comma convention, as it doesn't seem
to be in ePAPR.  It does seem common though, and is my personal
preference:

[mark@leverpostej:~/src/linux]% git grep '@[a-z0-9]\+,[a-b0-9]\+' \                          
	-- arch/arm/boot/dts | wc -l
254
[mark@leverpostej:~/src/linux]% git grep '@[a-z0-9]\+,[a-b0-9]\+' \
	-- arch/powerpc/boot/dts | wc -l
370
[mark@leverpostej:~/src/linux]% git grep '@[a-z0-9]\+,[a-b0-9]\+' \
        -- arch/*/boot/dts | wc -l

I don't think we fixed it up in the end. It made drivers look a bit messy and
it dropped off my priority queue.

Cheers,
Mark.
