You are right. I assumed that when Tudor was setting OF_POPULATED,
they didn't want to create a struct device and they knew it was right
for their platform.

However...
$ git grep "atmel,sama5d2-pmc"
arch/arm/boot/dts/sama5d2.dtsi: compatible =
"atmel,sama5d2-pmc", "syscon";
arch/arm/mach-at91/pm.c: { .compatible = "atmel,sama5d2-pmc",
.data = &pmc_infos[1] },
drivers/clk/at91/pmc.c: { .compatible = "atmel,sama5d2-pmc" },
drivers/clk/at91/sama5d2.c:CLK_OF_DECLARE_DRIVER(sama5d2_pmc,
"atmel,sama5d2-pmc", sama5d2_pmc_setup);
drivers/power/reset/at91-sama5d2_shdwc.c: { .compatible =
"atmel,sama5d2-pmc" },

Geez! How many drivers are there for this one device. Clearly not all
of them are going to bind. But I'm not going to dig into this. You can
reject this patch. I expect this series [1] to take care of the issue
Tudor was trying to fix.

Tudor,

Want to give this series [1] a shot?
