So, instead of keeping a fragile approach in one driver, we will spread this
to all of them.

This will bring a confuse, ID is used to form an instance name, for now
we don't have several instances of any of the devices from PMIC.

On top of above, some of the resources (one already, others might be a case in
the future) is split between two drivers, which would bring even more confusion
to the entire picture.

There is one device node with several IRQ and other resources.
In pseudo code:

device node {
device ID,
IRQ 0,
IRQ 1,
...
MMIO 0,
...
}
