It could be, I can see fwnode_graph_parse_link() being useful in DRM, 
for example. But at this, only media core and v4l2 are making use of it.

This patch was created so that fwnode links can be parsed in a new media 
core function that forms media links from fwnode links.

The full patchset doesn't seem to be up yet, but see [1] for the cover
