As default the Linux will create all the platform device for each DT node, which
Can be found from "drivers/of/platform.c".

So we can get the pdev node using the specified DT node, and feel safe to use
it as Pankaj's patch does.

And also we must make sure that the 'syscon' DT nodes has the compatible prop.

Thanks,

BRs
