Ok, we missed this for the sam9x60 SoC that we added recently then.

Anyway a little too late, coming back to this machine, and talking to
Yash, isn't "sifive,fu540-c000-macb" more specific and a better match
for being future proof? I would advice for the most specific possible
with other compatible strings on the same line in the DT, like:

"sifive,fu540-c000-macb", "sifive,fu540-macb"

Moreover, is it really a "macb" or a "gem" type of interface from
Cadence? Not a big deal, but just to discuss the topic to the bone...

Note that I'm fine if you consider that what you have in net-next new is
