Agree with our statement.

For lanitq xrx200 this is all i have. So if i have to use syscon and
regmap i am also not sure how to handle this.

Yes this would be the best practice. But the hardware designer for what
ever reason
placed the Register for the temperature sensors into the CGU (Clock
Generation Unit) section!
And the Register is also shared with some other stuff which is not only
assign for temperature
stuff! I am not sure how to handle this in the device tree.

This is a Register description extract from the data sheet

GPHY Configuration Register 01
This register configures the booting options of GPHY1 IP.

And that is a dts tree from LEDE/Openwrt for lantiq

reg = <0x1F000000 0x800000>;
ranges = <0x0 0x1F000000 0x7FFFFF>;

eiu0: eiu@101000 {
#interrupt-cells = <1>;
interrupt-controller;
compatible = "lantiq,eiu-xway";
reg = <0x101000 0x1000>;
interrupt-parent = <&icu0>;
lantiq,eiu-irqs = <166 135 66 40 41 42>;
};

pmu0: pmu@102000 {
compatible = "lantiq,pmu-xway";
reg = <0x102000 0x1000>;
};

cgu0: cgu@103000 {
compatible = "lantiq,cgu-xway";
reg = <0x103000 0x1000>;
-> This is the place to add the binding?
};

Sorry for the noise but i am unsure how to do this.
Thanks for help

Florian
