looks good and from cursory review it seems to resolve the opa362
bug as a side-effect. Maybe this can be noted in the commit description.

What I am not sure how this magically defines the output as
reg=<1> or if we have to swap reg number definitions in the DT.
But encoder-tfp410.c and encoder-tpd12s015.c seem to do it the
same way, so it is very likely that it works as defined.

Well, I had hoped our bug fix makes it into v4.19 and can be
potentially backported to stable.

Do you plan to backport you patch? It seems to be quite independent
and should apply to older releases.
