This patchset adds more features to this driver, so i would like to add
a DRV_VERSION there as an initial one. In the future, if some new features
or extensions for existing features (e.g. new revision of a private feature)
are added we need to bump this version.

Yes, it's intended. Currently we don't have any hardware with revisions > 2,
and support new revisions may need new code. :) e.g. currently revision is
used to tell 32bit vs 512bit PR, but in future revisions, it may have new
capability registers for this purpose.
