I would NACK a patch that did that, if you were to submit it here.

If you want to augment the drivers to get more information from the device tree,
like names, I would be okay with that. But I don't like moving any fabric
functionality from the fabric driver into another driver. The SSI driver cannot
ever be aware of more than one SSI at a time.
