Thanks for the review/comments. So, what's your recommendation here -
add the reset info to driver match data and use SoC-specific
compatibles? That will also work, we just didn't go that route as it
appeared to be adding hardware data to a driver.

We have made this change to avoid adding the reset data in the consumer
nodes as was done in v1, and provide it in the controller node itself.
We still need a way for consumers to match a specific reset. This is
unavoidable if the controller were to encode all the reset data (even if
we go with coding up the resets in the driver using SoC-specific
compatibles, and use a dt-include header file to mark the indices).
