I don't understand this whole binding. Why can't the pdc timer be
programmed within the rpmh driver? This looks like a node is being added
as a child just to make a platform driver and device match up in the
linux kernel. And that in turn causes a regmap to need to be created?
Sorry, it just looks really bad.

There are two RSC devices in SoC one for application processor subsystem & other display subsystem. Both RSC contain registers for PDC timers (one for each subsystem). But only for application processor the PDC timer needs to be programmed when application processor enters sleep/suspend. As the driver is common between both RSC devices, this approach is taken. Do you have any other suggestions to distinguish between the two? Perhaps, by additional compatible string?

Thanks for the review.
