We've had the same discussion over and over for quite a long time :-) I
wonder, now that we have implemented SoC-specific compatible values for
many IP cores, how many of them have actually benefited from it ? I'm
not considering IP cores where we knew from the start that each SoC was
different (such as pinctrl or clocks for instance), but IP cores where
we though all SoCs would be handled in the same way. I also wouldn't
count ES-specific differences, as those are handled by
soc_device_match() anyway.
