To make it more obvious : s/obsolete/OBSOLETE/

nit: I would re-order the compatible strings to show the precedence of
choice.

e.g,
- CoreSight non-configurable Replicator
"arm,coresight-static-replicator";
"arm,coresight-replicator"; (OBSOLETE. For
backward compatibility. Will be removed )


Also, please could we put a warning in the driver when we encounter it
and request to update it ?

Cheers
