D1 dtbs_check warnings, but relies on a strict rx->tx ordering, which is
the reverse of what a different board expects:

   rk3326-odroid-go2.dtb: serial@ff030000: dma-names:0: 'rx' was expected

A quick and incomplete check shows the inconsistency is present in many
other DT files:

Why not fixing the DTS? The properties should have fixed order.

I was initially concerned about the risk of a potential ABI breakage, but I think that's not really a problem since dma-names is not directly accessed in the driver and DT Kernel API doesn't rely on a particular order.

If there are no objections, I would switch the order in the binding to tx->rx, since that's what most of the DTS use, and fix the remaining ones.
