The dtd structure is only know to the driver with the SoC orientated compatible string.
I see guessing the "reg" size more as a legacy that we keep using for existing drivers
and should be deprecated.

You are right here, but other then rk3288 I don't see that happen for other 32bit Rockchip SoCs.
It's more verbose, because struct syscon_uc_info is not there yet in the bind fase. (ie. calloc)

Driver flags might solve only the "reg" size part, but not the ARRAY_SIZE and the unknown "reg" property location part.

This would create a parallel data flow of a "size flag and ARRAY_SIZE variable + data" in
a structure to the syscon class driver that also must be stored somewhere,
while we could do the thing correct in the regmap structure right away.
