Hi Sascha,

As clock driver and reset controller registers are mixed together in
Mediatek SoCs I would pretty like to see the reset driver in the clock
driver. This is also the way other SoCs handle this case.
As syscon is available at this time, both the clock and the reset
driver should use this (via syscon_node_to_regmap). For your reset
driver, this should be a minimal change as you already use regmap.

Please coordinate with James and Henry to get this into one series using syscon.
