The node name should reflect the class of the device, so it should be

Hmmm, I'm not really fond of this.

There's already a PRCM node in the DT, which is used for the SMP

I really don't want any duplicate memory regions in the DT, so you'll
have to fix the SMP code.

That being said, I can understand that you did this to be consistent
with the scheme we have for the clock controller where we chose to
make every clock a single driver.

That worked well for the CCU precisely because we only had clocks. It
doesn't for the PRCM because it's not been very well documented, and
it does clocks, resets, that fits pretty well in the existing
frameworks we have, but the SMP related functions are actually not
fitting that well.

It's mostly a power clamp and a power gating bits, that could maybe
fit in the regulator framework.

I don't really have a solution for this. Maybe someone else will.
