In early_syscon_probe np->data contains pointer to struct syscon which
stores base, regmap and res - driver private data for system controller.
(init in early_syscon_probe)
This is the way I am aware of how to share driver private data without pdev.
Maybe there is better way how to do it that's why please let me know
if you are aware about it.

Thanks,
Michal
