What's the point of having a compatible here? I mean, I3C devices are
already attached to the relevant drivers using the Provisional ID, why
would we need a compatible if we don't parse it?

Oops. Will fix the typo.

Right. I've changed my mind so many times that I ended up mixing the 2
representations I have considered.

Here are the choices we have:

1/ expose the raw ProvisionalID which is a 48-bit integer formed by the
concatenation of the vendor ID, part ID and instance ID:
ProvisionalID = VendorID << 33 | PartID << 16 | InstanceID << 12 |
ExtraInfo
The I3C dev node name should in this case be something like
<device-type>@<static-address>,<i3c-pid>

2/ split the fields we are really interested in in different cells:
2nd cell: vendorID
3rd cell: partID
4th cell: instanceID
In this case, the node name should be
<device-type>@<static-address>,<i3c-vendor>,<i3c-partid>,<i3c-instanceid>

Note that we can still change for the second representation if Rob is
okay.

Well, I2C devs is a special case, and I'm not sure we want to add the
extra LVR information + the IS_I2C_DEV bit in the node name.

One more detail: people are unlikely to define reg using raw values: I
provide macros to do that in patch 6.

No, as said above, it's not needed.

Ditto.

Thanks for your review.
