Hi Alexandru,

thank you for the comments.

That is why I initially only unified the reset ops and not the whole
platorm driver.

I could partially revert this latest change and keep the reset-socfpga
driver, just reusing the reset-simple ops to avoid potential "quirk
creep" in the reset-simple driver.

Or I could drop the #reset-cells warning below and just read the
altr,modrst-offset property for any reset controller, to avoid the
special-case.

I'm fine with removing this. Ideally, this is something that the device
tree compiler should check already.

Possibly. Adding new device tree bindings is a separate discussion.

I'll change this as you suggest.
