Actually I was not sure where to place this reset controller driver. When I
looked into other similar ones such as sunxi, they just integrated into the
clk subsystem. So I just chose that path. But yeah, this is hacky!

But this RMU is not MFD by any means. Since the CMU (Clock) and RMU (Reset)
are two separate IPs inside SoC, we shouldn't describe it as a MFD driver. Since
RMU has only 2 registers, the HW designers decided to use up the CMU memory
map. So, maybe syscon would be best option I think. What is your opinion?

Even if we go for syscon, we should place the reset driver within clk
framework as I can see other SoCs like Mediatek are doing the same. But again
I'm not sure!

Thanks,
Mani
