OK.

For a device-specific driver knowing about all resets, that is indeed the case.
For the generic case (e.g. my vfio-platform use case), it just wants to reset
the device, and thus passes NULL.

Perhaps I should use devm_reset_control_array_get_exclusive() instead of
reset_control_get_exclusive(), to assert all resets?

However, that makes the detection of shared resets more tricky, as it needs
to consider all combinations. Currently e.g.
resets = <&rst1> <&rst2>;
and
resets = <&rst2> <&rst1>;
is not detected as reset sharing...

As device_reset() also uses the first reset only, I'll keep it that way...

Thanks, consider it done for next version.
