Yes, the idea was to make this binding more generic. Hence no "ti/omap"
prefix were used.
'linux' prefix denotes bindings specific to linux, keymap has
keycodes which is linux specific. Hence, linux,keymap looks
appropriate. But num rows/ cols are keyboard specific, so I am not
sure if linux prefix goes well here ??

Yes, I also think that its a good idea to make some of the above
binding more generic. Though, I think "linux,keypad-no-autorepeat"
will still be a custom binding, since its totally on the platform
whether to use
autorepeat feature or not?
