Hi Jianxin,

(it's great to see that you and your team are upstreaming this early)

why do we need that comment here (I don't understand it - why doesn't
the "reg" property cover this)?

only now I notice that all our other .dtsi also use hex values
(instead of decimal as just a few lines above) here
do you know if there is a particular reason for this?

the indentation of the "reg" property is off here

also I'm a bit surprised to see no busses (like aobus, cbus, periphs, ...) here
aren't there any busses defined in the A1 SoC implementation or are
were you planning to add them later?
