I've thought the common compatible string was reasonable for all UniPhier
SoCs. However, since there are some different features among SoCs
like "desc-bits" etc. and such feature would increase from now on,
it's convenient to add compatible strings for each SoCs.

This property was added after determining to use common compatible string.
I'll re-consider to use compatible strings for each SoCs.

Surely phy-handle is missing in this. I'll fix it with mdio node.
