Hmm, either is ok to me. this way may save some properties and nodes.
But i still prefer to do pin mux and config at the same place as you did
in the binding doc like:
sdmmc4_clk_pcc4 {
	nvidia,pins =	"sdmmc4_clk_pcc4",
			"sdmmc4_rst_n_pcc3";
	nvidia,function = "sdmmc4";
	nvidia,pull = <0>;
	nvidia,tristate = <0>;
};
It's very easy to read and control.
Anyway, this is question how to write dts rather than the patch itself.
This patch is ok to me.
