Sorry for not getting back to you earlier on this topic.

It sounds like you use a syscon area in the reset driver. This is not
uncommon, but it means you should probably have a generic node for
the SoC specific registers that contains all of them at once and
exports them as a regmap using the drivers/mfd/syscon.c driver.
