No. sun7i-a20-crypto is perfectly fine, and the pattern is used for
all the IPs. sun7i is the SoC family, A20 the actual SoC. In the A20
case, they're equivalent, it's not the case for other Allwinner
SoCs. And I definitely prefer consistency over plain mess. You might
see it differently, but that's not going to change.
