[adding Sachin Kamat to Cc, he just had the same issue]

I think we should rather define the 'ranges' property to translate from
addresses within the sram to bus addresses.

Is this enough? Normally we should define a list of "compatible" strings
that people can add to, but not have an anything-allowed option.
