My worry is not that there are two r906g03X devices that will work fine
with this driver, but that there will be other "rzn1" devices that will not
work with these bindings (the header file is part of the bindings).
Besides, RZ/N1D and RZ/N1S (Which apparently differ in packaging only?
Oh no, RZ/N1D (the larger package) has less QSPI channels than RZ/N1S
(the smaller package)), there's also (at least) RZ/N1L.

You can add r9a06g033-clocks.h when adding support for RZ/N1S.

We thought the same thing when the first RZ member (RZ/A1H) showed up.
Did we know this was not going to be the first SoC of a new RZ family, but
the first SoC of the first subfamily (RZ/A) of the RZ family... And the
various subfamilies bear not much similarity.

Correct. And to mitigate that, we have no other choice than to use the real
part numbers to differentiate. Once bitten, twice shy.
