Reset at least has a standard binding.

This looks to me like it should be a single phandle. How many different
register layouts across how many SoCs do you need to support?

Again, reset has standard binding.

Also consider if you really need to access all of these vs. assuming a
fixed mode that the firmware/bootloader sets up.

No.
