As mentioned in my reply to the cover letter, this patch isn't needed.

We ask people to add model-specific compatibles in the device tree
in case the hardware turns out not to be so compatible with the old
hardware we thought it was compatible with. With the model-specific
compatible in place, we have a way out. Without it, we'd have to ask
everyone to update their device trees, which annoys some people who'd
like to have some sort of backward compatibility.

If the model-specific + fallback compatibles combination was to be
listed, the line would include both compatibles. But we're not doing
that for Allwinner stuff. As mentioned it is there just in case. The
best outcome is we don't care and don't need to use them.
