Hi Rob,

Lukasz uses these two syscon regmaps to read certain registers. For
chipid he reads it to check the size of attached memory (only 2 GB
version is supported). This indeed looks like a hack. However the
second regmap (clk) is needed to get the timing data from registers
from DMC clock driver address space. These are registers with memory
timing so their data is not exposed anyway in common clk framework.

Best regards,
