Yes, I agree.
They are equivalent.

But sprd SoCs have too many registers and the representation might matter.
Here's some real code from local,

orca.dtsi:1276: syscons = <&pmu_apb_regs REG_PMU_APB_RF_PD_AUDCP_SYS_CFG MASK_PMU_APB_RF_PD_AUDCP_SYS_FORCE_SHUTDOWN >,

orca.dtsi-1281- <&pmu_apb_regs REG_PMU_APB_RF_SOFT_RST_SEL MASK_PMU_APB_RF_SOFT_RST_SEL>,
orca.dtsi-1282- <&pmu_apb_regs REG_PMU_APB_RF_PWR_STATUS3_DBG MASK_PMU_APB_RF_PD_AUDCP_SYS_STATE>,
orca.dtsi-1283- <&pmu_apb_regs REG_PMU_APB_RF_PWR_STATUS3_DBG MASK_PMU_APB_RF_PD_AUDCP_AUDDSP_STATE>,
orca.dtsi-1284- <&pmu_apb_regs REG_PMU_APB_RF_SLEEP_STATUS MASK_PMU_APB_RF_AUDCP_SLP_STATUS>,
--
orca.dtsi:1288: syscon-names = "sysshutdown", "coreshutdown", "deepsleep", "corereset",
orca.dtsi-1289- "sysreset", "reset_sel", "sysstatus", "corestatus", "sleepstatus",
orca.dtsi-1290- "bootprotect", "bootvector", "bootaddress_sel";


ud710.dtsi:1268: syscons = <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARD_PRESENT_32K>,
ud710.dtsi-1269- <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARD_PROTECT_32K>,
ud710.dtsi-1270- <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARDDET_DBNC_EN_32K>,
ud710.dtsi-1271- <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARDDET_DBNC_THD_32K>;
ud710.dtsi:1272: syscon-names = "sd_detect_pol",
ud710.dtsi-1273- "sd_hotplug_protect_en",
ud710.dtsi-1274- "sd_hotplug_debounce_en",
ud710.dtsi-1275- "sd_hotplug_debounce_cn";

Compare to following,

sd_hotplug_protect_en-syscon = <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARD_PRESENT_32K>;
sd_hotplug_debounce_en-syscon = <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARD_PROTECT_32K>;
sd_hotplug_debounce_cn-syscon = <&aon_apb_regs REG_AON_APB_SDIO0_CTRL_REG MASK_AON_APB_SDIO0_EMMC_CARDDET_DBNC_THD_32K>;
.....

For me, my choice would be the former.
It looks more clear.

No other reason.

I like this idea. syscon_regmap_lookup_by_phandle_args() would be better?

May I impelement them both?

But I will be OK if no one here except me likes to expand name list.

Best,
Orson
