On closer inspection, it looks like wrtgr (also not a great name for a
variable by the way) is a register address. Is that correct?
Initially I thought it was a model number, which would have been a
suitable candidate for entry into OF .data.

However, describing register addresses in OF .data does not sound like
good practice. It is usually used to identify a platform in the cases
where platforms cannot be otherwise dynamically interrogated for model
number via a register read.

Describing register maps via 'config' data is a slippery slope.
