But that is insufficient for the SSI driver, which is expected to handle 
multiple SSIs.  If you're going to document a binding for the SSI driver, 
then you need to document how to handle multiple SSIs.

Ok, I don't understand that at all.

I also don't understand why you insist on perverting my driver to support 
two incompatible bindings, especially since I still haven't heard an 
explanation as to what's wrong with the binding that I defined.
