Oops, this should take *args, not args.

Given "resets" is a more-or-less standard property, I'd say yes.
Especially given of_parse_phandle_with_args() does verify that the target
node has #reset-cells, and that the number of parameters matches that.

As there's at least one other function in -next that compares of_phandle_args,
I will add a helper of_phandle_args_eq().

Indeed, will do, also for lookup resets.

We already have of_print_phandle_args(), but that is a bit inflexible.
Adding support for "%pOFa" looks like the modern thing to do.
