But can a driver that only knows about the original exynos4-hdmi operate
any of the HW correctly without any additional knowledge? If not, the
new HW isn't compatible with the old.

The table above looks /almost/ exactly correct to me, although I'm
unsure why samsung,exynos5250-hdmi has *two* version values; surely
there's a 1:1 mapping between the compatible values and the HW
compatibility they represent? That's certainly the intent.

Perhaps the "two values" think is because you're representing quirks or
features rather than HW versions? Compatible is supposed to represent HW
versions. Each HW version has a set of features/quirks, and multiple HW
versions can have intersecting sets of features/quirks. However,
features/quirks aren't HW versions.
