I completely agree. Both me and Lorenzo pointed that out in previous
revisions and fair enough you have a valid concern it's use with PPTT.

Should be fine.

May be use a simple inline wrapper functions to convert, might help if
we diverge too.

priv is used to save architecture/cache specific details that can't be
generalized. I doubt if this of_node or PPTT pointer/offset falls in
that category.
