Yes, I forgot to add this compatible string. I will add in v2.

I agree that CLINT is present in a lot of non-SiFive RISC-V SOCs and
FPGAs but this IP is only documented as part of SiFive FU540 SOC.
(Refer, https://static.dev.sifive.com/FU540-C000-v1.0.pdf)

The RISC-V foundation should host the CLINT spec independently
under https://github.com/riscv and make CLINT spec totally open.

For now, I have documented it just like PLIC DT bindings found at:
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/interrupt-controller/sifive,plic-1.0.0.txt

If RISC-V maintainers agree then I will document it as "RISC-V CLINT".
