The reset controller is part of a larger "sundry" node which has a
collection of functionality, from pinmux/pinctrl, reset controller,
spare bits, chicken bits, anything the designers forgot to put somewhere
else and decided to put there.

If there is one thing consistent though is that given a set of 32-bit
register groups, they have a self contained functionality such that you
can break up the larger "sundry" space into smaller sub-blocks which
have one an only one functionality. Do you think this warrants a
different representation in Device Tree?
