Sub-nodes are fine, but you also can't have a device node that
is just 'compatible = "hisilicon,sysctrl", "syscon";' when
hisilicon,sysctrl can refer to multiple mutually incompatible
controllers.

The minimum fix would be to mandate the string to be
compatible = "hisilicon,hi6220-sysctrl", "hisilicon,sysctrl", "syscon";
for this model, and use respective compatible strings for the other
chips.

For the documentation, I think it would make sense to move that
description to "hisilicon,sysctrl" and list all the variants of that
component and the respective compatible strings there, rather than
have one document per chip and list multiple components in it.
