I'm OK with having the fallback compatible. I'm just pointing out
that there are and will be a whole bunch of them, and we don't need
to document all of them unless we are actually doing something to
support them.

On the other hand, the compatible string situation for IR needs a
bit of cleaning up at the moment. Right now we have sun4i-a10 and
sun5i-a13. As Jernej pointed out, the A13's register definition is
different from A64 (or any other SoCs later than sun6i). So we need
someone with an A10s/A13 device that has IR to test it and see if
the driver or the manual is wrong, and we'd likely add a compatible
for the A20.

Also, the earlier SoCs (A10/sun5i/A20) have IR TX capability. This
was lost in A31, and also all of sun8i / sun50i. So we're going to
need to add an A31 compatible that all later platforms would need
to switch to.
