But then you need to create mux controllers on demand. I have not
succeeded in doing that while also following the rules of the driver
model. I had severe problems with life-time issues when I tried.
I would like to see code before embarking on this path, and I'm
apparently not the one writing it...

So, either you meant that, or that the parent node should somehow
specify the possible mux controllers up front so that they can be
pre-created and ready when the consumers request them. But if you
do that, you can just refer to them by some enumeration from the
mux consumers instead of by some convoluted reg+field notation.
