Thanks for commenting it, the preallocate way is not a good way, but I
can't find suitable way. See below comments.

Before compatible matching, the host driver doesn't know which pwrseq type
for its child node, then doesn't know which pwrseq instance needs to be
allocated. From dts, we don't know which pwrseq type for the node.
