Actually, current v9 of the mbus patch set still requires "controller"
property to match the corresponding controller node. I had a short
discussion with Ezequiel to possibly just use of_find_compatible_node
and blindly assumed post-v8 will already use it.

Ah, regarding this: despite your good arguin against the 'controller' property approach,
I still feel a bit inclined for it, as I like the way it tightly-binds the two nodes.

I understand that the phandle property *shows* you that both are
related. But with DT you should always ask for every property, if
(a) it is really required to do the job and (b) does it really
describe the HW or just your SW needs/wishes.

So for the phandle property, I'd prefer to not put it into DT but
let the driver handle it.
