I'd rather see patches 1 and 2 you have already posted, then probably a
modernization patch which converts the platform driver to use devm_ and
friends. Then a patch adding the existing of bindings [1]. This patch is
probably quite small if you prepare the driver in the modernization
patch properly. The last patch will add the new reg-io-width property.


[1] Maybe also deleting the existing of_platform driver, but I'm not sure.
