This sounds like a good idea. I agree that this currently doesn't seem
to be warranted, but consider what would happen if at some point we have
more devices requiring access to the IRAM. Spreading individual reg
properties all across the DT will make it very difficult to ensure they
don't overlap.

Presumably the mmio-sram driver will check that pool don't overlap. Or
even if it doesn't it will make it a lot easier to verify because it's
all in the same DT node and then consumers only reference it.

I like Vladimir's proposal. I also suspect that Rob may want us to stick
to a standardized way referencing such external memory.
