I assume you're speaking of G12A and not about GXM:
you already need it for your G12A pinctrl patches, which is why you
add it in: [0]

looking at the datasheet: it seems that there's only a name mismatch
(aobus in our .dtsi, "rti" in the datasheet)
offset and size correspond with the datasheet

OK, but we had incorrect documentation in the past. did you check this
with someone from Amlogic?

I'm curious because there seem to be two different approaches here:
1) hiubus name and offsets are being fixed within this patch
2) aobus is being dropped here and re-introduced with a different name later on

approach 1) can also be used for the "rti" region (at least in my
opinion, the patch doesn't explain why it can't be done):
rename "aobus" to "rti" and change the size to either 0x1000 or 0xb000
(both values can be found in mesong12a.dtsi from
