Using data-shift is a great idea! If I understand your use-case you 
currently only have one sensor attached on the parallel bus right? If so 
we can postpone the multi sensor part until it's needed and just learn 
the VIN driver about data-shift. From the documentation,

  - data-shift: on the parallel data busses, if bus-width is used to 
    specify the number of data lines, data-shift can be used to specify 
    which data lines are used, e.g. "bus-width=<8>; data-shift=<2>;" 
    means, that lines 9:2 are used.

So in this case would not specifying data-shift=<8> solve the DT 
description problem? The VIN driver still needs to learn about this tho.
