Sorry, I misread the question as being a mismatch between the
capabilities of the device binding and the driver, not about the
specific compatible name. Something like "generic-ide" would probably
be better.

The gap between registers is nonstandard, but that's a fairly common
type of noncompliance in embedded-land, and probably merits being
supported in a generic way. I wouldn't call it "highly" nonstandard.

Is there some other non-standardness that I'm missing?

What would be the advantage of maintaining a list of chips whose only
difference is register spacing, rather than just using reg-shift and
being done with it?
