+* System Controller Registers R/W driver
+
+System controller node represents a register region containing a set
+of miscellaneous registers. The registers are not cohesive enough to
+represent as any specific type of device. The typical use-case is for
+some other node's driver, or platform-specific code, to acquire a
+reference to the syscon node (e.g. by phandle, node path, or search
+using a specific compatible value), interrogate the node (or associated
+OS driver) to determine the location of the registers, and access the
+registers directly.
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible: Should contain "syscon".
+- reg: the register region can be accessed from syscon
+
+Examples:
+gpr: iomuxc-gpr@020e0000 {
+ compatible = "fsl,imx6q-iomuxc-gpr", "syscon";
+ reg = <0x020e0000 0x38>;
+};
