There's only one interface, SDIO, but two SDIO functions. The two
functions, if both were to be described in the device tree, would
be two separate nodes. We just don't have any use for the WiFi one
right now. Does that make sense to keep the suffix?

I get that. I can fix up the existing users where necessary. A proper
binding would make the driver lookup be more efficient as well.

Number of functions does not really matter. Number of interfaces on the
bus would matter. Why would you have two separate nodes for the same
SDIO interface? Or do you want to say there are two interfaces?

Right, one device at 2 addresses on a bus should be a node with 2 "reg"
entries, not 2 nodes with 1 "reg" address each.
