This cannot become part of imx6qdl.dtsi for two reasons:

1. It's not safe to be enabled on imx6qdl in secure state, see
excerpt from DT binding documentation below
2. We cannot enable it by default, since DTS format does not provide
a method to unset it in board files using a imx6qdl in secure
mode.

Here is an extract from the DT documentation for the PMU node:

- secure-reg-access : Indicates that the ARMv7 Secure Debug Enable Register
(SDER) is accessible. This will cause the driver to do
any setup required that is only possible in ARMv7 secure
state. If not present the ARMv7 SDER will not be touched,
which means the PMU may fail to operate unless external
code (bootloader or security monitor) has performed the
appropriate initialisation. Note that this property is
not valid for non-ARMv7 CPUs or ARMv7 CPUs booting Linux
in Non-secure state.

For B450v3, B650v3 and B850v3 it's safe to enable the bit and it
improves debugging capabilities a lot.
