By mistake "syscon" name is documented in "touchscreen" label above. In
the
touchscreen driver code and .dtsi file it's named and used as "ts_syscon".
Please refer https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/2/9/71 for the changes.
Let me know if this ok. I will correct the documentation in the next
patch.

Yes, I will update the change log in the next patch.

In Cygnus SOC, Touch screen controller registers are shared with ADC and
flex timer IP's.
Using readl/writel could lead to race condition. So this patch is
introduced to take care
mutually exclusive access of register's in such a case.

In the platform's where touchscreen register's are not shared normal
readl/writel
could be used.

Based on the dt property entry "reg" or "ts_syscon" register accesses are
handled.
if "reg" is provided normal readl/writel API's are used to access
register's else if
"ts_syscon" is provided then syscon API's are used.
