Yeah, I thought that too, see my cover letter. The problem is, in that
module are also some register which are of interest when implementing
suspend/resume support (see cover letter too). However, we could also
just make a dt entry for that reset register only, and create another dt
entry for the other registers.

Beside the system reset, there is only a mask functionality for the
watchdogs (there are two watchdogs, one for Cortex-A5 and one for the
M4). This makes the SRC module in the Vybrid a bit different then what
is available on other i.MX SoC's...
