Many SoC vendors use SoC-specific compatible string, often in addition to more
generic ones. When a more generic compatible string is available, drivers can
match against it, which avoid having to update drivers every time a new SoC
integrates the same version of the IP core. The SoC-specific compatible string
is still specified in DT, "just in case" we later realize that the IP core
integrated in the SoC is slightly different than the other ones and requires
specific handling in the driver.

I'm not completely happy with that scheme, as it's really a workaround for
defective communication with the hardware team (or possibly defective hardware
development...), but that's the best compromise we have so far.
