The new approach looks good to me, thanks!

As Mark pointed out, you still need to document the fact that
the SPI controller can now have additional entries in its 'reg'
property, and it would be nice to reference the mbus binding
from the spi controller binding as a help for people that
want to enable the direct mode.
