Sorry. Every subsystem has different conventions for this so I
usually just do a "git log" on the file and make my best guess. I'll
try to remember this for next time though.

In this case, though, it looks like this already landed. I see this
patch in Kishon's next branch.

Here's the code works. You can tell me how you want this expressed in
the bindings:

* In all cases the driver maps its main memory range (for the common
serdes block) without specifying any name. This is equivalent to
asking for index 0.

* For "qcom,sdm845-qmp-usb3-phy" the driver requests a second memory
range by name using the name "dp_com".

...basically the driver is inconsistent between using names and
indices and I was trying to document that fact.

I guess options:

1. I could reword this so it's clearer (open to suggestions)

2. I could add something to the bindings saying that the first reg
name should be "reg-base" or something. Then the question is whether
we should go to the code and start enforcing that. If we do choose to
enforce it then it's technically breaking compatibility (though I
doubt there is any real dts in the wild). If we don't choose to
enforce it then why did we bother saying what it should be named?

Anyway, let me know. As I said above, Kishon already applied this
change but I'm happy to post a followup.
