The subnodes are not needed, you can just have a property that tells in
which mode the controller is supposed to operate, and the MFD would
create a sub-device that points to the same device_node. Or we can have
a single driver that decides what to declare (a spi_controller or flash
controller), but you'd still have to decide where to place this
driver...
