Please could we use "offset" rather than "off" for both of these? That
way it's obvious these aren't properties for disabling some feature.

How variable are these offsets in practice? Is the memory map not fixed?

What's this for, and how is it used?

This is a standard property, so I don't think it needs to be described
here.

Could you elaborate on this?

Huh? The "qcom,sdm845-llcc" bindings wasn't described above, and it's
not clear what this means.

This looks very wrong. Why do you need syscon and simple-mfd?

Why is this a sub-node?

Why isn't the top-level node just "qcom,sdm845-llcc" ?

What is a "usecase id" ?

Is this meant to align with #cache-cells? It would be best to keep a
common prefix (i.e. call that #cache-slice-cells).

Thanks,
Mark.
