It is used by the driver to generate a unique firmware name.
Basically we need to know which controller instance we
are as each controller has a different firmware which needs
to be loaded.

Rob did say that having a index type property is undesirable
over here, see my reply at the bottom
http://www.spinics.net/lists/devicetree/msg92529.html.

However I can't think of any other useful properties we could add
to derive this information.

Ok will fix in v3

Just checking the upstream driver which got merged for v4.3
and the compatible has changed to "st,sti-uni-player" so I
can update the DT doc example to use this in v3.

Presumably it is the use of "underscores" in the compatible which
is not allowed? Is that correct?

Peter.
