The system-controller node should really describe
all of the system controller.  If the Linux driver
needs to access two separate devices, it should
really just do that.  Don't try to make things
"simpler" in the device tree.

You probably should map the SDC registers in the
platform startop code, and then have the various
platform drivers use that.  Maybe even do an
abstraction ;-)
