I'd prefer to have #defines for the reset bits if they are named in the
documentation and use the names in the dts. But if you want to reference
reset bits by number in the device tree instead, I won't insist.

Consider using two cells in the phandle for register and bit offset
instead of a single number that arbitrarily starts at 128.
