Good point :-). Currently, none of the OMAP platforms have multiple 
control modules and it doesn't seem to be in the future (AFAIK). While 
it might be simpler to support multiple control devices with phandle, it 
might face the same complications as faced by the USB PHY framework for 
non-dt boot.
