I don't think the suggestion was to add the nvm string to the
compatible, but rather compatible strings serve as a map key. Having
board specific firmware files for wifi/bt is pretty common, but
parameters for 'i2s' is a bit strange. So a better explanation of what
parameters this contains would help. How/when does it vary, for
example?

Also, if it is only a handful of parameters, making them DT properties
is preferred.
