dt: add helper functions to read u32 and string property values
Add helper functions to retrieve unsigned integer and string property values from properties of a device node. These helper functions can be used to lookup a property in a device node, perform error checking and read the property value. [grant.likely@secretlab.ca: Proposal and initial implementation] Signed-off-by: Thomas Abraham <thomas.abraham@linaro.org> [grant.likely: some word smithing and be more defensive validating the string] Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>
