Oh, it differs between revisions, too?
Yes, in that case you need soc_device_match().

Sorry, typo on my side. So H3 is not yet supported ;-)

That's what I was trying to find out, hence my question about the purpose.

True, but IIRC, arm64 can handle that, right?
Don't know about SuperH.

Good question!
