How to define an I2C-to-SPI bridge device ?

we're about to get new MPC8377 based hardware with various peripherals.
There are two I2C-to-SPI bridge devices (NXP SC18IS602) and I'm not sure
how to define a proper dts...

Of course it's an easy thing creating 2 child nodes on the CPU's I2C
device - but how can I represent the created SPI bus ?

Is the (possibly) required driver (of_sc18is60x_spi ?) supposed to be an
I2C slave or an SPI host driver ?

Any help is welcome.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
