Ah, I see. Please don't do this wrapper node like what was done on
DWC3. It should be all one node with the SoC specific part being a new
compatible string (and maybe additional properties). If there's really
some custom logic around the IP block, then maybe it makes sense, but
if it is just different clock connections, phys, resets, etc. those
don't need a separate node.
