This is DTS, not drivers. Please do not mix it.

So where did you delete it? I still see it in this patch.

"Will" is the future tense, so about which patch are we talking?

NAK, because:

"so it should be deleted."

Again, what drivers have anything to do here?

Device is only one thing, not two.

I expect one device node. How many drivers you have does not matter: you
can instantiate 100 Linux devices in 100 Linux device drivers.
