Look at a driver like the wm831x regulator drivers - they don't have
device tree but they're reusing a driver for an IP with the base
register for the IP being specified in the MFD.  If convering to DT it
might be reasonable to specify this in device tree, though it's marginal
since the part name in the core is also good enough.
