It's your average multi-function device with other functions as you are
suspecting.  Buried in the the MFD driver comments is me admitting that
I need to split this into two bindings. The base device, "bcm59056" and
then "bcm59056-reg". So point noted, I'll updated with the appropriate
binding for each.
