But that could be handled refactoring the code in question or similar.

The fundamental problem here is that you're using devicetree, which is
supposed to only describe the hardware, to encode policy which should be
deferred to user space.

So I think you need to figure out an interface that allows user space to
set the polling interval for any hub at runtime instead.
