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.


(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
