Likely (again, I unfortunately don't have a ton of detail on the hardware).

So yes the dwc3-of-simple does much of this already (it handles
multiple resets, and variable clocks), but unfortunately we seem to
need new bindings for each device added? I think the suggestion from
Rob was due to the sprawl of bindings for the glue code, and the extra
complexity of the parent node. So I believe Rob just thought it made
sense to collapse this down into the core?

I'm not really passionate about either approach, and am happy to
rework (as long as there is eventual progress :).
Just let me know what you'd prefer.
