Yes, I thought this is (was?) the recommended practice for IP blocks in
SoCs that don't have their own version (vs something like a Synopsis
block used many places):

* Use the first SoC to have the block as the base compatible for the
block.
* Always add the current SoC, in additional to the base, in the SoC's
dts's list of compatibles. Even if unneeded at the present.
* The driver will list the base compatible in the match table, and will
add new ones for specific socs if/when there is a need for it.
