I guess I could have been a bit more verbose in the commit message:
as Neil already said our public datasheet doesn't mention these
registers (neither on GXBB, GXL, GXM nor Meson8b)
however, the vendor kernel sources contain enough information: 
- the reset controller starts at CBUS (0x1101 * 4)
- the RESET0_LEVEL register is at CBUS (0x1120 * 4)
- offset between start and the LEVEL registers: (0x1120 - 0x1101) * 4 = 0x7c
I tested this with the dwmac (Ethernet) reset:
I modified the stmmac driver so it only asserts the reset, but never
this breaks ethernet - and even if I reboot into u-boot ethernet is
dead (I have to do a full power-cycle to get it working again)
with the unmodified stmmac driver (which de-asserts the reset line
again) both the stmmac driver itself and u-boot are working fine again
