We did have a lengthy discussion about [PATCH 3/3] how to best (1)
represent the slave device in the device tree but as far as I am concerned,
I do not see that we have a consensus (2) and the device tree maintainers
have no comments or clear guidelines so far.

BR,
Nikolaus

(1) best with respect to maintainability, flexibility, common design patterns,
compatibility and some other factors I don’t know the correct english words for
(2) basically the slave can be described as a subnode like for I2C bus slaves
or the slave device can reference the uart it is connected to like for GPIOs
and regulators
