As you know we are open to change this when we have alternative for doing that.
I have read discussion about early device probing. Especially for this slcr case.
It is giant IP where generic locking is, clock stuff, pin muxing, reset, cpu startup.
It points to use syscon and regmap and I would love to use better solution
but slcr unlocking must be done very early for clock setup and smp startup.
If you know how to do it let me know. I am definitely open to try that solution.

I expect that this topic will be discussed on ksummit or at least on arm minisummit.
