I'm not sure whether a "d3-support" property would be acceptable.
My understanding is that capabilities which can be auto-sensed by
the driver (or the PCI core in this case), e.g. by looking at the
PCI IDs or compatible string, should not be described in the DT.

My point was really that this should be determined by
platform_pci_bridge_d3(), that's what the function is for,
instead of inventing a new mechanism.  Exactly how the capability
is detected by of_pci_bridge_d3() is up to DT schema maintainers.

A DT property does have the advantage of better maintainability,
unlike a whitelist which may need to constantly be extended.
