Using "safexcel-eip197" as a compatible was a mistake as there's no such
thing as an eip197, they all have minor versions (such as 'b').

I've thought about using the compatible for a less specific binding, but
this isn't true for the other patch, using the compatible ending in
"-eip97". The engine it supports is the most specific one (i.e. with the
largest number of algorithms supported). So it would simply not work,
and as we only have a few device trees supporting the engine as of now,
I thought fixing this by removing the wrong compatible was a better
solution (of course the driver is backward compatible, and using the old
compatibles will still work).

Thanks,
Antoine
