You've not CCed any of the DT maintainers on this, for a completely new
bus it seems like we really ought to get their input.

It seems better to just say that the controller is a normal device using
the binding for whatever bus it is on and that the binding is for the
bus which is a child node of the controller device?  Also, do we need
#address-cells or #size-cells here?

The idiom for DT seems to be that we define the bus address using the
reg property.  Should we not be following that pattern here too?  I'd
also expect to see the ability to define a compatible for the slaves.
