The sfpb-mutex registers make up a block (according to my
documentation), but after discussing tcsr with Andy Gross we concluded
that although the tcsr-mutex registers are layed out consecutively in
the tcsr, they are not alone in the block.

Further more Andy introduced the tcsr-syscon binding in his work to
support DMA on GSBI (uart/i2c/spi), so that's why I had to make this

Preferrably this would have showed up before v6...

Unfortunately there isn't, as we discussed this mainly face to face a
few weeks back.
