This is related to my reply on another patch of this series. I think it's
likely that you need to be able to describe anybus devices in DT
for additional properties in some cases, even if the common case
doesn't need it.

We do the same thing on PCI and USB, where normally everything
is probed through hardware access, but a device driver can look
at dev->of_node to see if that contains any further properties.
