Yes, I believe it is quite far fetched. We are talking about someone
setting compatible sting to something that is decidedly not compatible.
I.e. we know that devices driven by elan_i2c are not compatible with
hi-over-i2c driver/protocol, so why do we expect that they both will be
specified in the same compatible string? I know ACPI case is messier in
this regard as 2 drivers look at the different data items when
evaluating whether they should bind to the device, but here we are
dealing with the same string.

Thanks.
