As you note, just adding the old (unreviewed) compatible string isn't
enough.

That's right. That old data was completely out of tree and unreviewed.
It's part of the reason why we're going through the process of posting DT
data to the kernel and devicetree lists and getting that data reviewed:

People can continue to use the out-of-tree DT data if they want. They'll
just have to continue to patch their kernels to add out-of-tree drivers,
as they do now.

Otherwise, if people want to use the upstream PRCI driver in the upstream
kernel, then it's necessary to use DT data that aligns with what's in the
upstream binding documentation.
