I've no reference to base an opinion on as I have no hardware that
would use this facility.

However, it seems obvious to me that if a reset line is shared between
several devices, and when the reset line is asserted, it blocks reading
the ID, then we do need a way for the AMBA primecell code to be able
to lift the reset to read the device ID, and we need to do it in a way
that is capable of being done even when another device/driver has
already bound and taken control of the reset line.

That said, if a reset line is shared between multiple devices, and a
driver wants to assert the reset line, it would disrupt the operation
of all those devices, so there would need to be some kind of
synchronisation between the drivers.

A different way to look at it though is that such a reset line is not
a property of the individual devices, but of the bus - in which case
it should be specified at bus level and controlled at bus level, not
at individual device level.

What is appropriate is entirely dependent on the hardware setup, and
as I said above, with no view of the hardware I am unable to give a
meaningful opinion.
