Why do you need those? Use the compatible of the cpus to determine big
and little cores. Or there's the cpu capacity property that could be
used instead.

Is there more than 1 CCI? Just retrieve the node by the compatible.
There's no need to have nodes that simply serve as a collection of
data for some driver.

To put this another way, write an SoC specific driver that understands
to some extent what exists in the SoC (and DT). I doubt something like
this is going to be generic across more than a few SoCs at most.
