No need for the resend. I am hoping for a final review from a DT human.

This approach looks fine to me. In practice I think it is restricted to
hardware blocks that don't exist in DT yet (e.g. no driver, in the case
of your interconnect) and that restriction is probably for the best.

Regards,
Mike
