This is ultimately Dmitry's call, but it's fairly common to use wildcards
for driver names and function calls if the driver is known to work across
all devices that fit in the wildcard (see iqs5xx and many others).

The risk with wildcards, however, is that vendors can introduce different
devices later with similar part numbers. Therefore, some subsystems (e.g.
iio) tend to frown upon wildcards for that reason.

You should try and make the driver cover as many devices as possible. But
if the driver is only known to work for one device then I don't think you
can use a wildcard in the name unless you support all other devices (just
my opinion).

In either case, however, compatible strings must be unique just as with a
part number in a schematic or bill of materials. As such, it is perfectly
fine to have multiple compatible strings in a single driver.
