Hi Hans,

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

The reason why I changed this is to make sure that module auto-loading will not
regress after the following patch is merged:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10089425/

It's true that only DT nodes with compatible "bosch,bma250" and "bosch,bma250e"
are used in Device Tree source files in mainline, but I didn't know if others
could be used by out-of-tree DTB.

Right, I also wondered about that, but then I saw that there's a DT binding for
another chips with the same model but a different function ("bosch,bmc150_magn").

Documentation/devicetree/bindings/iio/magnetometer/bmc150_magn.txt

So I thought it could be a convention for bosch chips.

Indeed, sorry for missing that. I posted patches for several drivers so I forgot
to add the DT binding docs. My main goal was just to prevent the driver to use
the I2C device table to match the driver when the devices are registered via OF
and to have proper OF module aliases in the driver module so udev could autoload
the module.

I preferred someone familiar with the device to write the DT binding document.
