Thanks for reviewing this. I guess I should have sent a complete
patchset with all remaining bindings and the move for the complete
binding instead of sending single binding doc patches.

It is not that easy since the code in reset.c is shared for all ralink
platforms and the mediatek,mt7621-sysc node is only for mt7621. So I
guess I have to "duplicate" the reset code and put it in the clock
driver for mt7621 as you are pointing out here. I have to also review
how other drivers are using the reset, using reset apis or directly
through the syscon.

Thanks for clarification.
