Du you have a name for the ISA spec that distinguishes it from other nds32
versions that are incompatible? If you do, this could be written like

compatible = "andestech,n13", "andestech,nds32v3.0";

to signify that a an 'n13' core implements the 'v3.0' ISA (will it
whatever you call the ISA in reality).
