I generally prefer that we describe the hardware blocks as accurate as
possible, instead of applying current restrictions on Linux onto the
description. This ensures that we can reuse the binding and drivers in
configurations not considered today. However, afaict we still have the
problem that we need a way to express where in the RSC our TCS sits.

Regardless of what's right or not, the given example causes the driver
to fail probing, so something needs to be changed. (Making the drv size
0xd00 is functional but doesn't really relate to any bondary in the
register space).
