If this is for some official remoteproc FW running on M4, then probably
this could be implied by compatible. Otherwise, if this depends on
actual M4 firmware which can totally vary between each board of the same
type (I can run my own FW on M4, right?), then it is not suitable DT
property. How it would even look like? You add here 500 ms for all known
firmwares and then someone comes with FW requiring delay of 600 ms.
