device_reset{,_optional}() are supposed to reset the passed device.
If the reset is not dedicated, doing so will reset other devices, too.

Thanks, nice catch!

That would make it work with #reset-cells == 0 only.
If #reset-cells > 0, the reset line specifier includes extra arguments.

On the Renesas SoCs I'm using, there's a single reset controller, so
args.np is always the same. The actual reset line is specified by
args.args[0]. See the "resets" properties in e.g.
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/geert/renesas-drivers.git/tree/arch/arm64/boot/dts/renesas/r8a7795.dtsi
