If I remember correctly what I was asking for was to derive as much as
possible from simply a phandle. That is, what I was after is a phandle
to the PMU and ideally a way for the PMU to pass back information about
the register and value for the power off command.

Given the lack of a PMU abstraction and how this is probably very Tegra
specific I was okay with leaving reg-addr and reg-data in the DT. But if
we can't derive even the slave address from a phandle along with the I2C
bus master, then I think there remains little point in doing it this way
at all.

If we're going to duplicate three properties, adding a fourth isn't
going to make it much worse.
