If there is only one canvas provider under "sysctrl_DMC" and it has no reg
property , you should not put a unit-address (@0) here. (same for the
documentation patch)

You may have seen unit-address without a reg property used elsewhere (ASoC
simple-card, my recent axg-sound-card), when there is multiple node with the
same node-name (ex: dai-link).

As Martin pointed out, the DT spec says we should not use unit-address unless
there is a reg property. We did not get Rob's view on this and we might have to
update this later on. In your case, unless I missed something, you should
definitely not have it

nitpick regarding the node-name (canvas-provider). If appropriate, we should try
to stick to one of the generic names proposed in the spec. I wonder if the
canvas provider could be viewed as a "memory" or "memory-controller"

So, what about this ? Just a proposition, feel free to comment ;)

	sysctrl_DMC: system-controller@0 {							compatib
le = "amlogic,gx-dmc-sysctrl", "syscon", "simple-mfd";> 		reg =
<0x0 0x0 0x0 0x1000>;
	
		canvas: memory-controller {
			compatible = "amlogic,canvas";
		}

[...]
