The value is provided via platform data, so it is platform specific
and presumably needs to be configurable. I did, however, not find
a single in-kernel driver which is actually setting it.
So this is a good question.

A quick look into the code suggests that this is a chip specific register,
and the register address is set by the driver depending on the chip type.
I don't think it should be configurable via dt.
