Allwinner H6 SoC uses a Mali T720 GPU, which is one of the GPUs in the
Midgard GPU product line.

Add binding for the H6 Mali Midgard GPU.

I'd think you might want to keep an alphabetical sorting here, aka
above amlogic, otherwise the list will probably become hard to read
at some later point.

While this paragraph is similar to how it is done in Utgard, I'm
wondering why we cannot just describe the "resets" as regular
optional property above that.

Because it's not really optional, it's mandatory on some platforms
(like this one) and has no significance on others.

Optional is fine, but I don't want to see every vendor doing their own
definition (there's a similar patch for meson[1]). Please first figure
out how many resets the IP block has. ARM should help as they were
eager for me to accept this binding in the first place. Then we can
see if vendors have extra resets.
