I worry a bit about feature creep in the simple-reset driver.
Your patch on its own is simple enough, and I'm not opposed to add a
SET/CLR feature on principle, but there are a few issues:

The RESET_SIMPLE Kconfig description currently says:
  "This enables a simple reset controller driver for reset lines that
   that can be asserted and deasserted by toggling bits in a contiguous,
   exclusive register space."
That would have to be extended to mention SET/CLR register pairs as an
alternative.

What about status (reset_simple_status)? Can current reset line status
be read back from the SET register, as is currently tried? If not, is
there a way to read current reset line status back at all?

The data->lock spinlock is only needed to protect the read-modify-write
cycle on a toggle register, for separate SET/CLR register access the
locking is not necessary.

At this point, it may or may not be easier to add a custom reset driver.
Either way you go, this is missing binding documentation for the
st,stm32mp1-rcc compatible in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/reset.
