That is *every* licensed IP block and DWC3 is the oddball where we did
this 2 node thing. It is not a pattern we should continue. If there's
registers in the wrapper, then yes, having 2 nodes makes sense. But
just additional clocks or resets, no. I would guess these extra clocks
and resets are inter-connect related and are needed as an artifact of
not describing and managing inter-connects.

I can just as easily argue it doesn't describe the hardware. I'm
pretty sure the DWC3 has clocks and resets yet there are none in the
DWC3 node. How can it operate with no clocks?

Linux driver architecture doesn't dictate bindings.
