These compatibles alone is not correct. There should be a specific
compatible for the device.

Also, I don't think "syscon" even makes sense in this case.

There is no point in this node being in DT. It doesn't define any
resources. All it does is provide you a convenient way to bind your
driver, but that is not the purpose of DT. Put a specific compatible
in the parent and its driver can instantiate whatever child devices it
wants.
