Very much so. Future chips will have different register maps. Because of this, Arnd
suggested that we use 'syscon' and 'regmap' to alleviate this maintenance burden.

Sure. Our H/W designers unfortunately didn't put the boot and restart registers into a
logical grouping, or standard register interface. Instead, they're all over the place.
How do you suggest naming the nodes to indicate this?

Thanks,
