Should have replied you long back :-)

No worries :-)

and I want "more-data" to reference only one phandle, how would this be

yes this would fail.

The device tree compiler would concatenate all the cells and we have no
means to know where did "more-data" starts.

sounds like composite driver is the way forward.

What's your preference on "separate driver" vs. "part of the NVMEM
framework"? Should I keep it as a separate driver or try to fold it
into NVMEM core?

It does not make sense to have this driver as a separate nvmem provider, can you fold it in the nvmem core itself for now.
