Yes, this register is part of the ECC block of registers. In order to
get each probe function to run, the L2 EDAC and OCRAM EDAC had to be at
the top level of the device tree. If they are children of a parent node,
the probe functions aren't executed.
Is there a better way or example I should follow?

Unfortunately, the register is locked for exclusive access by the L2
cache driver. I read your comment on patch 4 and will find a better way.
